Railway blues

The Register gives de facto support to the protesters who shut down crucial rail lines and disrupted the lives of untold thousands as a nation was held hostage by illegal protests against a legal pipeline. Notably absent, as it was in the CBC or most regional rating-hungry TV news programs, was any interview with Indigenous Canadians among the 20 bands who support the pipeline. They support it because it represents a real opportunity to lift themselves out of devastating poverty.

Sacrificial example

I want to applaud and fall down on my knees in thanksgiving for the courage and faithfulness of the Delta Hospice Society in British Columbia for not caving in to government pressure to conform to the evil agenda of MAiD (Medical Assistance in Dying).

Narrow viewpoint

Re: Lost cause (Letters to the Editor, Dec. 29):

So sad to read John Killackey’s narrow viewpoint of the recent political downfall of the Conservatives.
