Dear L. Soucy,

Thank you for your comment “Editor has not right criticizing NDP”. The NDP was voted into power by a vast majority and may continue to do so after the four years in power. We can agree or disagree on politics, at home we have political debates all the time, but always with respect.

I agree with your assessment that Mr. Salkeld (often) repeats his bias by criticizing our provincial government without the necessary support of research and facts. I have been involved in journalism for a number of years, and the very first lesson we learned was to be sure of any statistics or information to support any argument.

Mr. Salkeld may be new in this job and will learn over time that he has the duty not to publish his bias, but facts only.

Jeanny Pontin, Millet
