Letter: Canada’s problems echoed in US debates

United States and Canada are having the same problems of greed and racism.

To the editor:

I am sorry that you did not print my last letter and assume it was too lengthy. I will however keep this one short.

I hope our politicians were listening to the American election debate on Sept. 26. Both candidates recognize the problems that are depriving many of us of a good life. They recognize that importing goods from undemocratic countries that deny a livable wage to their workers and eliminates employment in their country, drains resources and enriches a few.

We need to tax heavily any such products and put a stop to the foreign monopolies that control most of our retailing.

United States and Canada are having the same problems of greed and racism. What the American candidates are promising is good; we should listen to them and the make sure they are delivered.
