Response to last week’s Letter to the Editor

Posted on March 4, 2022 by admin

I read Mr. Visser’s Letter to the Editor in the Feb. 23 edition. I strongly agree with his perception, especially that “freedom brings with it responsibility to adhere to a democratically elected government.” We may not always agree with our federal or provincial counterparts, but must go along with the majority in an elected system.
So true the statement: “We are encourage, but not forced to be vaccinated.” I love Canada, I love Alberta. I do not understand the flying of Canada/Alberta flags representing lack of freedom and protesting getting vaccinated.
An extremely good Letter to the Editor also appeared in the Feb. 17 edition of the Western Producer newspaper by Mr. Ed Donkersgoed of Coaldale that all Canadians should find and read. Both he and Mr. Visser I’m very proud of. Most of us are first to third generation Canadians and very proud to be citizens. Think about war torn Europe in the last 150 years.

Bill Tverkutes,
