Letters: Bigotry has consequences

Re: 'Bob Zimmer: Not the time to reimagine our economy', Alaska Highway News, Nov. 25, 2020

Bob, this is precisely the bigotry and racism your recent op-ed has enabled by propagating the myth of the “Great Reset”.

Might I remind you that a significant number of the health care work force in Fort St John are women and immigrants. You represent all Canadians in your riding, not just the conspiracy mongering bigots you pandered to in your opinion piece. This bigotry, which you are enabling, is a major reason why immigrant health care professionals do not feel welcome in Fort St John and tend not to stay.

If you were to be a true leader you would publicly state that there is no such thing as the “Great Reset” and it is merely conspiracy nonsense fostered by internet bots and trolls.

So are you a leader or a follower of bigotry and baseless conspiracies?

— Dr Paul Mackey, Fort St. John
