Letter: In defence of David Suzuki after Fletcher column

Tom Fletcher’ …vitriolic column is a discredit to your newspaper.

To the editor:

Re: Tom Fletcher’s poisonous and ugly slander of one of our most valued and respected scientists and environmentalists, David Suzuki, I feel his vitriolic column is a discredit to your newspaper.

All his disparaging phrases could be used to describe himself: “bully pulpit,” “sucker punches,” “flagrant disregard for the rules of science,” “angry curmudgeon lashing out at his enemies,” “scud missile of misinformation,” etc.

Our world and especially our province is richer for the presence of David Suzuki and his longtime commitment to trying to reverse damage, inform the public and heal our planet.
