LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Criticizing truck convoy spreads hate

Convoy was about freedom of choice, says letter writer

To the editor,

Re: Convoys are undermining what Canada stands for, Letters, March 2.

In my understanding of the laws of Canada, your paper is once again spreading hateful letters. There are laws that govern spreading hate and your paper, by publishing this letter, is and has promoted hate.

This convoy was about the freedom to choose. I can legally choose to refuse treatment for cancer. I can legally refuse medical attention. I can legally not take a prescription. I can take illegal drugs and I will be treated if I overdose. I want the freedom to choose what I put into my body, so should you.

Keith Gillespie, Ladysmith
