After reading this article I felt I had to e-mail this self-congratulatory waste of skin. I know better than most that these people don't listen to anyone but CEOs but it made me feel better to vent.
Dear Minister Kenney:
I come from an immigrant family. My ancestor, Jean Trudel(le), arrived in Quebec from Parfondeval, France in 1655. The first mass in Quebec was performed in his house in l'Ange Gardien. He and his wife, Margueritte Thomas, made a home and raised a family in that community. A marker stands in his honor there today. Celine Dion is also, I am told, one of Jean's descendants.
Your punitive cuts to Canada's Refugee Protection Act sicken me. I stand with doctors, front-line health care workers, rabbis and other fair minded people in condemning the denial of health care benefits to refugees.
You have tarnished Canada's reputation as a humanitarian nation. My family has been here longer than yours and I am ashamed of you.
Marilyn Trudel Bellamy
