Letter: Time to put Charlie Hodge on no-go list

Kelowna columnist known for agitating, gets under the skin of a reader with recent column

Open letter to Charlie Hodge:

I hope Tez enjoys herself down in (the US). You are probably not going. Not when you dis the United States like you have. I hope some bureaucrat puts you on that no-go list. The United States has good reason to be paranoid about their borders. Both for security reasons and economic reasons. Let’s go thru your list:

China: There is such a trade imbalance between the two countries that it is ridiculous. China’s policy to fix the yuan at a low rate doesn’t get you any brownie points.

I do applaud their actions on sanctions on North Korea (as long as they apply them to the letter) Maybe now they realize that the North Koreans can hit Beijing.

North Korea: These heavy (or heavier) sanctions should have been applied long ago. Due to an ostrich approach by successive (and do nothing) presidents, which included a massive monetary payment, we are now in the mess we (as the world) are in now.

Russia: Would we tolerate interference in our national and provincial elections….Hmmmmm guess Russia doesn’t have to….we have lucky PT (reincarnated as JT) governing Canada and an NDP provincial government.
