Star or star wars? – Openers

Star or star wars? – Openers – Letter to the Editor

Art Bradford

Dear Briarpatch,

The only invaluable legacy left by Prime Minister Jean Chretien has been his refusal to allow Canada to participate in the illegitimate and illegal attack against Iraq. This pre-emptive action, following the one in Afghanistan, has created a huge degree of insecurity among all who share this world.

No Canadian government has a democratic right to join the American Star Wars without holding a proper, successful, country-wide referendum. I am sure that the result of such an action would be a negative vote by a majority of Canadians. If we join without a referendum, we will have few grounds for claiming that we live in a democratic, sovereign country.
