I would like to applaud the comment in the letter from Warren Ellam in the March 11 edition of the Saanich News.
Tom Fletcher does sound more and more like a grumpy old man all the time, rather than an opinion columnist.
For example, the piece he wrote about the federal government meeting the provincial government regarding, for the most part, a climate change strategy. He could have wrote that before the meeting even took place, as it was clear he’s there to government bash for no other reason than entertainment.
I have long ago reached a point where he’s no longer entertaining. He’s an absolute drag on your paper, so please don’t mistake obstinence for a realistic perspective.
I might add that real, informed journalists that are not in the pocket of big business understand climate change perfectly well – not deny it.
