Whole story

Thank you to Fr. John Gallagher for being a voice of reason. Everything he wrote in “Reputations ruined over residential school graves” on June 13 is what I have said since these stories broket.

Farrow informative

In her June 12 column “MAiD to Measure,” Anna Farrow presents an informative history of euthanasia legislation in Canada, showing the advance in sheer ghoulishness over the past seven years.

See and do

It seems Lise Anglin’s letter to the editor regarding my article of May 15 did not take into consideration the advisory committee report on racism and discrimination in the Canadian armed forces, let alone the audience to whom it was directed.

Non-contentious

Crisis of fear

Peter Stockland’s column “Be not afraid” references the over-the-top reaction to the pandemic, but it also has powerful theological implications.

First steps

Your March 22 editorial “Look to Rome” states your commitment to “reconciliation between Canada’s First Nations and its, shall we say, later arrivals.” Cheeky! But overlooking Indigenous beliefs that they always existed on the land, and that “settlers”  were not simply later arrivals but a deceiving, destructive, endless throng that led to extreme social dislocation and loss of life, land and culture? Read Thomas King, Bob Joseph or Jesse Wente for detail.

Pompous Peter

What is Peter Stockland afraid of? After reading his rather pompous and self-opinionated April 3 column, I was disappointed in his lack of knowledge and compassion.
