Letter: Your cartoon kicked Don Cherry when he was down

Editor:

I have just started reading your newspaper and find it quite informative.

However, with respect, I am not happy about the cartoon of Don Cherry in your November 14 issue, on page 8.

Don has drawn Canadians together on several occasions, and was treated very unfairly because he respectfully expressed his opinion, the opinion of many Canadians, including myself. And he gets fired for it.

Where is free speech in all of this? Do we now have to be so very careful in what we say that we are afraid to say anything?

You kicked a good man when he is down. Shame on you.
