Diet anything but detox

To the Editor,

Re: Audit results are appalling, Letters, Jan 12.

This is an appalling idiocy scribbled by probably some old fool. The author’s calling the First Nation representative’s hunger strike “a detox diet”  is an unacceptable insult to anyone ever being forced to this last desperate attempt to be heard by an autocratic government.

What gives the author the right to bark his disrespect of the First Nations people and others?

People like him originally robbed native occupants of this and other continents. Now, as they did many times in the past, they are also trying to take away any respect from them.
