Re: “Let down? How about outraged?”, Letters, Jan. 19-21:


What self-righteous indignant poppycock from Ms. Del Piero! In the real world, bad things unfortunately happen to people all around the world. They even happen in Canada! But I do not expect the Canadian government to be my protector at all times, especially when I’m out of Canada.


Should we be upset and concerned about what has happened recently in Mexico? Absolutely. But should we expect our government to throw its weight around in another government’s jurisdiction? I think not.
