Letter: Diverse opinions must be allowed

 

Dear editor,

I, like Diane Topdosychuck, disagree wholeheartedly with every letter to your paper that Roland Seguin writes.Honestly, they make me roll my eyes. I feel the same way about Dean Clarks letters also as well as some other regular contributors.

I think I can safely assume there are folks out there who feel the same way about letters I have written. Since I would not want my local paper to censor me, that also of course means I would not want my paper to censor anyones letters, no matter how much I may disagree with the individual. 

Short of someone being racist, sexist , homophobic or hatefull in some other way to a specific person or group, all points of view should be able to be expressed. That is what truly separates us from regimes of suppression, and truly makes us free.

Jamie Clark, Fort Langley
