Dear letters editor of the Toronto Star,
I understand that Canadian law requires you to think in French half the time, and that this eats into your ability to check every item you receive, but Schon Golgerth’s recent letter could really have used some revision prior to publication. She wrote:
So Australian Prime Minister John Howard is counselling Stephen Harper on how to run a country? Howard is the soul of American outreach and its spokesman. He has abandoned Australia to American influence and to American interests. With the Australian voting system of proportional representation, he will stay in power and Australia will irretrievably become a U.S. satellite doing the big brother’s bidding.
Australia’s House of Representatives, voting for which determines who holds government, is not decided by proportional representation.
Australians can’t seem to figure out how to get rid of him so they have learned to live with him and apologize to the world for him.
Australians don’t want to get rid of him. Howard has been elected four times.
Howard sees himself as a great leader and Australians see him as an embarrassing U.S. parasite.
In 2004, Howard was re-elected with an increased majority.
Whatever you do, Canada, avoid this at all costs. Losing one’s identity for the economic crumbs thrown by the big brother impoverishes the spirit and impoverishes the will of the people to seek viable alternatives. We are on the same road Australia took some eight years ago …
Ten years. Howard was first elected in 1996.
Losing our sovereignty makes us subject to others’ desires and whims — like having to put our people in harm’s way because their troubles are forcibly made ours. Their propaganda becomes our thoughts; their rhetoric becomes our policy.
Golgerth’s idiocy becomes Star page-filler.
