Running counter to columnist’s thoughts

Reader was offended by thoughts on Justin Trudeau's age and abilities

I was offended having read the article written by Ruth Altendorf regarding JustinTrudeau. I didn’t realize that writing for the Observer gave one a platform to voice their political opinions.

I am very disappointed with her article as she intimates that people who are middle aged don’t have the energy nor the endurance to run a political party. Most of my friends are 60 plus and can work circles around a lot of these young people in politics. Plus they are much more educated about real life.

As for her agreeing with Mr. Trudeau about getting to the bottom of why these young men commit terrorist acts? It’s because they follow an ideology that is totally foreign to western thinking. Does she really believe the RCMP, CSIS, etc. are sitting around doing nothing in this regard just waiting for Justin Trudeau to come along and solve their problems!  Maybe Ruth Altendorf should be calling him the Messiah. I think she had better start researching more before she writes such nonsense. A person’s opinion is one thing but COME ON!!!!!
