To the Editor,

Re: Trustee resignation unfortunate for community, Guest Comment, Dec. 8.

I think it is only right to decry the fact that both Donna Allen, and your guest columnist, Eric Ricker, wish to deprive Bill Bard of his Canadian human rights.

Many have suffered and died to establish this code of conduct throughout the world

As Amnesty International celebrated Human Rights Day on Dec. 10, all citizens of Nanaimo should be appalled.

Eric Ricker wishes us to follow the example of the U.S.

The U.S is hardly the example we should be trying to emulate.

The  courts gave Bill Bard a conditional discharge for his guilty plea. It did not view him as a threat to society, adults or children – neither did most in Nanaimo.

We should be supporting and defending human rights, not depriving citizens of Canada of them.

Shame on Allen and Ricker for trying to take us back to the ‘bad old days’.
