LETTER: You may call her a ‘human moth’ but Rasode works hard for Surrey

The Editor,

Re: "Organized community is effective crimefighter," the Now, May 8.

Columnist Michael Booth’s metaphor – "a human moth" – implies one who is publicity hungry. But it can be seen in another context also as evidenced through Indian songs. That is, one is so in love with and dedicated to one’s cause that they are ready to sacrifice themselves for it.

Coun. Barinder Rasode has been very proactive in various issues, like violence against women. She has attracted a lot of media attention over the years for her work and now moreso over the split from Surrey First.

Reporters like controversy. They like to put out opposing points of view. You would know that in such situations, it is reporters and journalists who seek out the opposing viewpoint, instead of the other way around.

Coun. Rasode has worked hard and she is working hard especially now for transparency at city hall.
