Mr. Harper's decision to attack your recent health challenges reveals his lack of personal integrity, and questionable political judgment. You're right; Canada's health care system is in dire need of attention, and Canadians have not forgotten what it once was, and should again be.
Mr. Harper hates the Canada you and I grew up in; hates its social conscience and determination to create a just and good society.
I remember the promise that was our future, and jet fighters and for profit Supermax prisons was not a part of it; neither were police riots, nor billion dollar displays of contempt for democracy.
I remember public service, and honest optimism, and I reject the cynicism of Mr. Harper and his fellow neo-economists, who with their moral compasses fixed immovably on the bottom line reject the humane, favouring instead base self-interest.
Good luck, Jack
