No comparison to Nazi regime


Re: Misinformation a disservice, April 11 letters.

In his letter to the editor, Hardy Staub made an unfortunate and offensive reference to Nazi Germany.

Staub’s comparison of his local member of Parliament’s newsletter to the “government propaganda” produced in Nazi Germany is an affront not only to B.C.’s Jewish community but to all Canadians.

Analogies between a MP’s flyer, no matter the disagreement, and the propaganda of the Nazi regime, which systematically murdered more than six million people, should be strongly avoided.
