A couple of media notes.
First, I am quoted in this Ottawa Hill Times article on the prospects of a federal election this spring.
Plus, today the Winnipeg Free Press published a letter to the editor I wrote on the Kairos affair in response to this column by Frances Russell:
Frances Russell is correct to castigate the federal government for its clumsy handling of the Kairos affair (Religion underlies battle over Oda, Feb. 23).
However, she is wrong to suggest only evangelical Christians oppose funding advocacy groups.
In fact, Canadians of all denominations would likely oppose using tax dollars to subsidize such groups, especially at a time when the country faces a massive deficit.
This is not about religion, it's about common sense. Advocacy groups should not grind their axes with our taxes.
