LETTER: Don’t presume to speak for others on border closure, Maple Ridge writer says

Local woman doesn’t want to be lumped in with letter writer’s views on keeping Americans out of Canada

Dear Editor,

Re: Elly Morgan’s letter [Americans taking licence at border, Langley Advance Times, July 30]

There is a huge difference in population between the U.S. and Canada.

The U.S. has a population of 331,002,651 and Canada has a population of 37,742,154. No comparison between the two can be applied.

The writer can speak for him or her self regarding losing trust in America. Don’t assume everyone thinks like you do. I trust the U.S. to have our backs militarily.

This is from a thoughtful, intelligent person with no credentials.

Cherryl Katnich Maple Ridge
