Chilliwack letter writer Sylvia Philbrook blames our current political leaders for the COVID-19 pandemic.

LETTER: Resident blames political leadership for the current pandemic

‘They have knowingly allowed this plague to enter the country’

The epidemic we now face can be placed squarely on the half-wit fools we have in positions of power. Those responsible are guilty of treason and murder of those who have died. They have knowingly allowed this plague to enter the country with the full knowledge of its deadly capability of proliferation.

The entire country, which has been affected by this insanity should demand by the laws of endangerment the resignation and prosecution of the individuals responsible, which includes the present Prime Minister.

We should not be fooled by the attempt to placate with the bribery of handouts. Eventually, the political lackeys will claw the cost back from the working population with one form of tax or another.
