Letters to the EditorRESPONSES TO FEATURE ON THE CRISIS AT ‘PEOPLE HELPING PEOPLE’

UP IN SMOKE – KEITH CHARLES AND THE PERILS OF CARING FOR THOSE THAT NOBODY WANTS [Yodeller Feature, July 9, Joseph Couture]

I just wanted to say that Joseph Couture wrote an amazing article on the truths surrounding housing for people with mental health and addiction issues in the city of London. One can only hope that our City of London adopts a similar housing option like they have in Medicine Hat.  - Marcus Tober

Very well written Joseph. Finally the whole truth about the fire on Oxford street and a very accurate portrayal of who Keith Charles really is.   - Lee-Al Brown-Charles

The sooner these places are regulated, the better. The sooner adequate resources are put in place for these people, the better. Too many people fall between the cracks. Keith is not a villain; however he is ill-prepared to deal with these issues. The stakes are very high.  - John Swales

I found this article fair but a bit too long winded with too much time spent on the minutiae. The facts are these people are being neglected by the system and without people like Keith Charles they will be on the street being a nuisances to society. It is clear what is needed is stronger regulations with enforcement to ensure its implementation. Funding has to be a major component in the reform process.  - Rawle Blackman


READER’S LETTER DISPLAYED LACK OF INTEGRITY IN CLIMATE CHANGE CAUSE

IF HE DOESN’T SUPPORT ABORTION, THE POPE DOES NOT IMPRESS THIS CLIMATE CHANGE BELIEVER [Letter to the Editor, July 3, Paul Merrifield]

Ha ha. You are a climate change “believer” and you accept the Pope on your climate change team? What’s next, are you doomers going to be anti-gay and pro-life as well? Being willing to pump up the Pope and his beliefs shows just how far you climate change believers will go to fear-monger like neocons.  – Zosha123

Get up to date. OccupyWallStreet now does not even mention CO2 in its list of demands because of the bank-funded and corporate-run carbon trading stock markets ruled by politicians. Only science can say it’s “proven” but science isn’t allowed to say “proven”. But “believers” can say to little children that it’s “proven” they are doomed to a CO2 hell on earth? Is that why it’s called climate change “belief”? Bible-thumping, pope-worshiping climate change “believers”? Never saw this comin’.

Goregressivism;
ALGORE is my shepherd; I shall not think.

He maketh me lie down in his snow laden pastures:

He leadeth me beside his still-freezing waters.

He selleth my soul for CO2.

He leadeth me in the path of his self-righteousness for his own sake.

And yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of reason,

I shall fear all logic for Gore art with me and thinking for me.

Thy Gore family oil fortune and thy 10,000 square ft. Gore mansion, they comfort me.

Thou preparest a movie in the presence of contradictory evidence.

Thou anointest mine head with nonsense, my mindless conformity runneth over.

Surely blind faith and hysteria shall follow me all the days of the rest of my life,

And I shall dwell in the house of ALGORE forever.    - mememine

GLAD TO HAVE THE POPE ON BOARD CLIMATE CHANGE BANDWAGON

LOST IN TRANSLATION [Dappled Things, June 25, Paula Adamick] The recent article, Lost in Translation, was somewhat one-sided against climate change.  An editorial on the other side might help balance the journalistic scales. The author believes the Pope jumped on the not-yet-proven climate change bandwagon a bit prematurely.  She says ‘hundreds’ of serious scientists’ claim climate change is a hoax.  I wonder if they’ve read the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s recent report? Even if you don’t believe in climate change, anyone with open eyes can see the environment is worse off than ever  – see China’s pollution, talk to residents near the Kalamazoo whose river is still not clean from that oil spill or check out the devastation of the oil sands and our water contamination.  Yes, I think one more call from someone in some type of authority to start respecting our environment more isn’t a bad thing at all.  - D. Bumstead
