Case in point:
I'm getting a little tired of all those right-wing ranters who seem so attracted to your Letters page. I am one of those "bleeding heart liberals" who they so despise, and am damn proud of it. I support the long-form census -- yes it's intrusive -- because it provides vital information for our social programs. I support immigration because that's what we all are, except for our First Nations people. I support the gun registry because every cop in the country says it makes us safer in a way getting "tough" on crime does not.
So to all those redneck yahoos who want to turn Canada into another Tennessee, why don't you go back to your pumpkin patches and shoot something, preferably each other, and let us "lefties" try to reverse the damage done by Stephen Harper and return Canada to its prideful place on the international stage.
