Lack of Paralympic coverage politically motivated

The letter writer claims that Michelle Stilwell’s winning of a gold medal in the Rio Paralympics was not given the coverage it deserved.

To the Editor,

Re: Sports priorities all wrong, Letters, Sept. 20.

The letter writer claims that Michelle Stilwell’s winning of a gold medal in the Rio Paralympics was not given the coverage it deserved. I have a theory on that and doubt that I am wrong. Stilwell is the Liberal MLA for her area. I would suggest that if she had been NDP, this paper would have had it on the front page in large block letters. I contend that to be very sad but true.
