Letters to the Editor:
MacKay's cartoon was shameful
Graeme MacKay's cartoon in Friday's Spectator was an obscenity. It portrays Canadians as selfish, avaricious buffoons who care nothing for the plight of garment workers in Bangladesh so long as they can get their bargains. Because of the greed of Western corporations, clothing is outsourced to Third World nations to maximize profits, with little or no regard to the health and safety of workers in those countries. We as consumers are given no choice in the matter. It's impossible to find all our garment needs that are manufactured domestically. Shame on The Spectator for publishing this.
Hadyn Painter, Hamilton
* * * * * Spec cartoon was in poor taste
The Bangladesh "bargain basement" cartoon in last Friday's Spectator was extremely tasteless. I'm sure I'm not the only one to feel this way.
This is pushing freedom of speech too far.
