To the Editor,
Re: Blue dot is a red flag, Letters, June 11.
As a founder of Nanaimo Ratepayers I’m offended by the letter writer’s presumption that the right of us all to clean air, water and food is superseded by an industry’s right to avoid higher costs. If he wants to eat polluted food so some grocery chain can save a few bucks, let him, by all means, do so. But for him to suggest I should be so negligent of my own and my family’s health is insulting.
Our rights to life, liberty, and security of our persons is guaranteed by our Charter. Clean water, air and food fall within these basic rights.
