LETTER: Many on both sides of the border closure debate

Reader agrees with equating shut down of borders for COVID to Trump’s immigration efforts

Dear Editor,

[Re: Canadian border closure no different than Trump’s southern border closure, Sept. 13, Langley Advance Times online]

I completely agree with Mike Boileau’s views expressed in his latest letter.

Trust me there are many more on his side although you would never know it from the dearth of fair debate not expressed in our biased media.

Cherryl Katnich, Maple Ridge
