Broughton accusing Republicans of the things Democrats are doing

Letters to the editor

October 23, 2019

Letters to the Editor To the editor: I have to respond to Michael Broughton’s letter to the editor in the Aug. 15 edition of the Oakville Call. First, he and many in the leadership of the Democrat Party are calling conservatives and Republicans “Nazis.” That is extremely ironic since it is...

Letters to the editor

Letters to the Editor To the editor: Jan Tucker equates legal abortion to first-degree murder in her Oct. 10 letter. Tucker’s religious outpouring serves to highlight the hypocrisy of the always vocal anti-abortion contingent in our Christian communities.
