What are you doing, Tory?

John Tory will have blood on his hands. It’s really refreshing to see the Sun represent both sides of this emotional handgun ban debate. In one corner we have a police officer, union president Mike McCormack, who says a ban would divert resources from front-line policing and a ban on handguns will have no impact. On the other hand, we have a mayor fighting for his political life who knows nothing about police work but a lot about politics. Tory says: “If we can take a gun out of one hand, we can save a life.” The question Mr. Tory has to answer is: How many lives is he willing to sacrifice to get re-elected by diverting resources from frontline police?

Can we please get some information on others running for mayor? What about Faith Goldy, for example, or some of the many others running?

Responding to comments about recent gun violence, “Toronto remains a safe city” (Letters to the Editor, Sept. 4). Okay, that’s your opinion, but that claim is completely contradicted by the front-page headline in the same issue, which reads, among other things, “Man Killed in Front of His Wife, Two Small Children at Memorial for Murder Victims.” That says it all.

It’s not up to you teachers

Re “ETFO seeks injunction to maintain 15 gender-specific curriculum” (Antonella Artuso, September 4): So teachers want to teach their own agenda. They have gotten away with forcing their opinions on our children and grandchildren for years, and I for one am tired of it. If a student asks a question whose answer is not included in their current class’s syllabus, they should be cautioned to make it clear that anything beyond the subject matter should be discussed with their parents. It is not up to teachers to decide what to teach and what not to teach. I wish they would go back to teaching the three Rs and consider anything extracurricular as taboo. Surely they can leave some decisions to the parents of these children!

Subject “Crisis? What crisis?” (Goldy Hyder, September 4): In the final paragraph of this column on refugees, Hyder talks about the collective wisdom of Canadians when given the right information and the opportunity to speak and be heard. However, it appears that our Prime Minister has set up a naval blockade on free speech and commissioned the new “censorship ship” to prevent any meaningful discussion on the issue. And Trudeau, in defense of his ideals, is quick to call anyone who disagrees with him racist and/or un-Canadian. How are we supposed to solve a problem in this country when our own Prime Minister refuses to engage the public in meaningful dialogue?
