Hudak. I was outraged and embarrassed when the talk of the day for the provincial election was whether one of the candidates had used marijuana in his childhood.

I was hoping none of the world media would catch this useless conversation, which shows how pathetic our political status has become. Who will benefit from this kind of useless information? Are we going next to question the candidates whether they have ever urinated on themselves?

This shows how pathetic we have become. It is sad to hear this kind of conversation in an election at a time when we have so many issues to tackle in our country or in our global village. There are outstanding issues that deserve our attention, whether it is the ailing health-care system, famine in Africa and elsewhere, political unrest, the mass killings that are happening in the Middle East and many other things.

If the world community watches this, they will see us as pathetic humans who have lost their sense of direction.

Abubakar N. Kasim, Toronto
