Action needed to free incarcerated Canadians

By Letter to the Editor on December 18, 2019.

Our two Michaels, one year on, still imprisoned in China. I suppose the Liberal government has been too busy addressing their many scandals this past year to attend to our fellow citizens unjustly incarcerated abroad.

I would hope that instead of lamenting their poor decision making of late, that the leadership would finish what they started. There are still many moves on the board, but inaction will surely not win the game. In this case, the only way out is through – an asymmetric response that will honour their sacrifice.

It was once said, “Give me a lever long enough and a fulcrum on which to place it, and I shall move the world.” We have both the lever and the fulcrum, all that is needed is the will of our current government.

So, tell me, what is to be done? Of all of the election promises I have heard, the work that is most pressing ought to be the welfare of our beloved citizens. This Christmas season, let us remember those who will not join our festive table in person, but will be present in our hearts and prayers.
