Working out of town has left me behind on my local news. The Langley Advance letters section of Jan. 1 has left me in a quandary: where to start?
Dave Tall's beliefs about taxes [Facts missed in rant] covered everything except mentioning the Illuminati or Bilderberg Group. Mr. Tall's best bet is to hide under his bed until his concerns go away, and don't forget his tin foil hat.
Alyssa Donaldson had another groundless letter [Big House exhibits leave out significant historical players] about something missed by someone about something in the past that may have been unfair, but it is defiantly time to stop beating this dead horse and move on.
My grandfather came to Canada from Ireland in 1903 to get away from the English persecution; I never heard mention of this from my father as my family embraced Canada.
I would ask Susan Davidson [Dangerous powers ceded to China] where all the concerned citizens were when Imperial Oil came to Canada and has been taking oil since the late '40s.
TransCanada Pipeline ships to the U.S. The profits from the products do not accrue to Canada.
What is different from the Chinese interests in Canada? They have the money, Canada needs the revenues.
Comments about FIFA are currently sheer speculation.
From what I have observed and read, it does not appear to be in Canada's best interest. Make your concerns known to your elected officials and follow the processes.
While I sympathize with David Hamilton [Discretion left out, Jan. 1 Letters, Langley Advance], I must point out he has confused common sense with bureaucracy. The first is an alien concept to government and its employees. His best bet is to contact local council members. An email to them has always elicited a reply about my concerns, real or perceived.
