Letter: Insult due to misspelling unintentional

No intentional or unintentional slight was meant to Prime Minister Trudeau or our readers.

To the editor:

While Mr. Waters’ column was largely laudatory to our Prime Minister’s approach to dealing with protesters as opposed to that taken by the presumptive nominee for the US Republican party, I find his nasty/accidental/on purpose reference to “Turdeau-mania offensive.

It may have been an error on his part; it should not have happened.  My spell-check just identified the spelling so I don’t know where Mr. Waters’ attention was.  And, perhaps more importantly Mr./Ms. Editor, where does your responsibility lie?  Is it not to edit?

Linda Downard, Kelowna

Editor’s note: Ouch. Missed that one.

No intentional or unintentional slight was meant to Prime Minister Trudeau or our readers.
