To the Editor:

(Re: “Spend money to save Earth”)

In his letter to the editor, Michael Bunn writes about the wasted tax dollars on the Canadian purchase of submarines from England. He puts the blame on Stephen Harper (elected 2006), but the submarines were purchased in 1998 by Jean Chretien’s Liberal government (1993-2003).

Not liking Harper is one thing, falsely accusing him is another. How can the reader trust the veracity of the rest of Mr. Bunn’s letter?
