Re: Singh: Liberal government waging war against working class, online edition, Jan. 18

Truer words were never spoken. However, can Jagmeet Singh really be taken seriously when on the one hand he outrightly condemns Trudeau for this and his failure to address the health-care crises, while on the other he shamelessly continues to prop him up so he can cause even more harm?

Singh keeps coming across as being completely disingenuous and hypocritical. The NDP has always claimed to be the great defender of the working class. Yet Singh readily joined with Trudeau in dehumanizing the hard-working truckers in the “Freedom Convoy”.

Singh seems impressed about being “king maker”, but could be destroying the NDP by his continuing bromance with Trudeau. Is it any wonder Canadians do not trust politicians like Singh who preach one thing while doing the exact opposite?

THE WAR INCLUDES SINGH

NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh feels that the Liberal government is waging a war on Canadian workers. He is partially correct. The truth is that the Liberal government, backed and supported by the NDP, is waging a war on Canadian workers.

SOARING HEATING COSTS

Natural gas prices at 32 cents a cubic metre? I can only have a modicum of sympathy. Try 79.9 cents a litre for propane, plus $10.95 for delivery, and then add HST and the carbon tax.

Our latest bill was more than $400 and our fillups are every three weeks. About $200 a month for heating is only a dream as natural gas is not available in the area we live.

DOESN’T SEEM TOO COURAGEOUS

Unsurprisingly, a large coalition of community groups has called for the cancellation of an event featuring Jordan Peterson at the Canadian Tire Center later this month. Surprisingly, one of the signatories to this coalition is the Ottawa Historical Fencing Society.

As these historical role-playing swordsmen (swordspeople) obviously disagree with Mr. Peterson’s views and opinions, you would think they would be eager to attend. That way they could engage with their ideological nemesis, in a verbal parry and thrust during the Q&A portion of the event.

That’s what courageous crusaders would do, as attempting to just “cancel” an opponent is not only lazy, but cowardly. En garde.
