Letter to the editor: just in case

When the party I prefer is not the big winner, I would like to make some positive remarks.

When the party I prefer is not the big winner, I would like to make some positive remarks.  First of all that all Canadians are blessed to live in a free society.  Right at this very moment millions of people flee from households established for generations.  They want to re-establish themselves where peace can be expected.  As an immigrant family we feel very blessed with our new country.  After all the political rhetoric, it would be nice if Canada would make a sincere effort to invite those who lost everything to re-established themselves and start living in peace and harmony.  Ms. Merkel of Germany is giving the free world a good example.  She is not innocent about the related risks she is taking by doing so.  However, she learned her lessons in her younger years living under the reign of a Communist dictatorship.  I believe that Canadians at large are ready to follow her example.  Canada became “Canada” because over the years strangers were allowed to become part of us.  With the addition of future immigrants our current cultural mosaic can only become more interesting and enhanced.  May the “established” or new government adopt other country’s policies so together we can make Canada an even more exciting place.  We have much to share and by doing so we only can become richer in culture and mature together.

Of course all precautions have to be attended to, so those who apply for Canadian citizenship will indeed enrich our wonderful society.
