A letter to the Edmonton Sun

Dear editor(s),
It seems that the Letters to the Editor section isn't used by you appropriately.
First of all, many letters appear to be edited in such a fashion that sentences no longer make any sense grammatically or meaning-wise.
Secondly, your comments following each letter leave much to be desired in terms of reader-friendly and objective journalism. Just recently, you wrote in response to my letter regarding Harper's Orwellian hypocricy in the Bev Oda case that "the NDP are an anachronism, not a realistic alternative". Fortunately, the 2,5 million Canadians that supported New Democrats in 2008 didn't share this view. If saying something against governmental fraud and lies is an anachronism to you, perhaps you should consider a career change.

I need your help, people!

Yes, this is a shameless call for volunteers sent out by means of the blog. Blame me if you need to, but first - please join our team here in Edmonton-Leduc. You don't need to be actually living here, as there are a lot of projects, such as research and online media help, that we could use a hand in. You don't have to spend a lot of time on the campaign - even an hour a week would be appreciated. You don't even have to be a 100% NDP supporter - just a positive person wishing to make a difference.

The list of available work is not exhausted by the following:
  • canvassers
  • phone canvassers
  • volunteer recruiters
  • advertising director
  • canvassing director
  • online media helpers
  • researchers
  • area contacts
  • literature distributors
  • designers
  • webmaster
Please email me at , call me at 780-421-4821 or contact me through Facebook or Twitter. I look forward to hearing from you!

Well said, Mr. Dobbin

I don't remember the last time I had read something online that struck me as so well-phrased and well-argumented:
The way to move us from apathy of the most and activism by a few to a truly open democratic society indicated here is clear. Let's be bold, let's be different, let's win, friends!
