To the editor;
This letter will never make front page news, but for what it’s worth, Mr. Pimm’s simple truths rate higher to me than maintaining a status quo/politically correct image for the media.
One example: When the ALC (unelected by the people) can overrule four certified agrologists and claim non-farmland in their inventory just to make their ‘themselves’ look good, with no regard for the hard-working taxpayers who are footing the bill, and neither the people nor the government can do anything about it, one does have to ask: “WHO IS RUNNING THE PROVINCE?”
Thank heavens democracy is still flourishing due to a few courageous men with enough integrity to brave the media and correct this abuse of power. Thank-you Mr. Pimm, Mr. Bennet and Mr. Letnick for leashing this agency that has been out of control for far too long?
It needed doing. Your honesty, bravery and dedication to the people of this great province has not gone un-noticed.
By-the-way, the word ‘Indian’ is analogous to the word ‘Indigenous’, in this case meaning the original people of the country, much the same as we refer to the people of B.C. as ‘British Columbians’, or the people of Alberta as ‘Albertans’. I want you to know, Honorable Mr. Pimm, I am not offended by the word ‘Indian’. I refer to the indigenous blood running through my veins as ‘Indian’, not to offend my brothers, who insist their’s be called ‘First Nation blood’.
Indigenous, Indian, First Nation, Ontarian, American, Black, Yellow, Red; together we rule the world – we have bigger fish to fry.
