Letter: Mixing truckers, vaccinations and politics

Dear editor:

What probably 99 per cent of the “truckers” demonstrating for their “rights” in Ottawa are ignoring is that they have all been vaccinated and that is why they are alive and healthy in a healthy society with one of the lowest infant mortality rates in the world.

The Canadian public has to assume therefore that their motives for “demonstrating” are other than the need for vaccination to protect themselves and others.

Surely they are not so crass and ignorant that they would endanger family, friends, co-workers and the public by not being vaccinated, by not wearing a mask?

Hence we, Canadians at large, are forced to conclude that these truckers are the tools of various political entities – and prominent among those, all so-called conservative and extreme right-wing racist white supremacist hate groups masquerading as political parties.

This is Canadians literally aping American attitudes and behaviours.

That Canadian truckers are allowing themselves to be so manipulated and used is shameful.

It all reminds me of the Monty Python skit with the “Lumberjack” song.
