Finnen answers back

In reference to Cody Johnston’s letter to the editor in the Rimbey Review of Dec. 4.

Dear Editor:

In reference to Cody Johnston’s letter to the editor in the Rimbey Review of Dec. 4.

It appears MLA Joe Anglin has at least one follower, albeit I do question who the actual author of the article is. I believe Cody Johnston’s attempt to answer my letter has skidded way off topic and holds little or no relevance to the content of my letter.

I question the reason for the author’s attempt to link together the individual opinions of Jim Vetsch and I. I also question why the alleged author would find it necessary to try to discredit a couple of constituents of an MLA who does not represent him.

If Mr. Johnston feels my letter asking for “more honesty and less deception in our governments” is “behaving irrationally” (harsh words), I am sure the public at large does not share his opinion.

Upon careful consideration of the information in Mr. Johnston’s letter, I question if Mr. Johnston is really the primary/sole author of his letter.

I cannot speak for Mr. Vetsch’s letter, but I am sure Mr. Vetsch would be happy to defend his own position in the public media.

FYI a letter from me referring to AC/DC power transmission lines was sent to Mr. Anglin at the Alberta Legislature and also cc’ed to Danielle Smith. I stand behind my letter.

To use Mr. Johnston’s own words, Mr. Anglin has not shown the “common courtesy” of a reply to my letter.
