I cannot believe that you pay Tom Fletcher to write the kind of stuff that he wrote in his most recent column (“Clash of Visions”). This is exactly the kind of material that pours out from right-wing ‘think-tanks’, who are paid by Big Business to influence public opinion on their behalf. This could also have easily been a press release from Emperor Harper’s Office or from Princess Christy and her BC Liberals.
Your newspaper could make some money by charging Fletcher to print his political press releases, as he will be more than repaid by his corporate paymasters.
At the very least, please stop referring to him as a ‘legislative reporter’ and more accurately call him a ‘political lobbyist’.
