LETTER: Lonely for a leader

I am embarrassed to admit that the honourable Mr. Anders has three times been elected in the Alberta constituency in which I used to live.

On December 5, I was reading of the death of Nelson Mandela (1918 – 2013) and listening to interviews on CBC radio.

In my continuing search for leaders, I was reminded of the honourable member of Parliament Rob Anders, who referred to Mr. Mandela as a “terrorist”.

I am embarrassed to admit that the honourable Mr. Anders has three times been elected in the Alberta constituency in which I used to live.

During my time there, I never met anyone who voted for the honourable Mr. Anders — I must travel in the wrong crowd.  I am still looking for a leader who will address the real long-term issues that affect the whole planet — not the quick fix “money in the pot now” approach that we currently see.

The times are changing and we need a leader for the times.  I am looking for a long-term relationship; but don’t want to search online — this isn’t a short-term fling.
