The Editor,

Re. “Moore apologizes for ‘insensitive’ remarks” (tricitynews.com, Dec. 16).

I know I am not alone when I express my disgust with MP James Moore’s insensitive and shameful comments with regards to child poverty not being his problem.

Perhaps instead of apologizing, MP Moore will consider hosting a breakfast for malnourished children. With 153,000 poor children in B.C. alone, he need only rent Rogers Arena eight times to serve each child just one breakfast.

These children are not just hungry. They do not have adequate housing, proper clothing or school supplies. But who cares? Clearly not MP Moore. Shame on you.

Jane Thomsing,

Port Coquitlam
