Singh surprised by criticism in letter
I was a little taken aback by Rene Pellerin’s letter of Feb. 28 (‘Singh’s job rant rankles’), essentially criticizing me for comments I apologized for more than five years ago.
To say that praising a potential increase of 35 jobs at Moly-cop is a slap in the face because I did not, in the same breath, make mention of the regrettable loss of 125 jobs at Domtar seems quite a stretch.
I am indeed sad to see 125 people lose their jobs at Domtar and, perhaps, some of these people might find work at Moly-Cop.
I also think it is very important that heavy industry be held to very high environmental and health standards.
I appreciate all of Pellerin’s efforts on behalf of the employees at Domtar and would suggest I am much more a friend of those efforts than someone who is opposed to them.
I extend an offer to meet with Pellerin at his convenience to learn more about his issues and concerns.
I can be reached by phone at 250-574-3509 and by email at email@example.com.
