Surrey – The Editor, Re: “After a bad month, young couple restored my faith,” the Now letters.
Carole Martin’s letter about the kind couple in the U.S. epitomizes the selfish attitude a lot of us Canadians have.
She talks about her eye surgery which, I’m sure, was done in Canada using my tax dollars. She then goes on to say that she “dashed across the border to Cost Cutter for gas and a few groceries.” What about supporting her own local economy and the individuals and businesses that helped pay for her “free” eye surgery? If all the people like Carole shopped in Canada, I’m pretty sure my overall costs for everything (including gas and groceries) would go down. Shame on all you consistent cross-border shoppers.
