Writer will send no more letters to the Times

I’d like to thank all the people who called to thank me for calling a spade a spade

Editor, The Times

Re:  The end of freedom of the press, as I see it

On Sept. 26, 2012, I submitted a letter to the editor regarding the facts of the roundabout. The letter was based on quotes and statements from the Ministry of Highways, the mayor, and council that were printed in the Clearwater Times, the Kamloops Daily News, and the information package from the meeting at Clearwater Lodge on Sept. 6.

I received an email from our editor to inform me that he wouldn’t print my letter without significant changes. For that reason, this is my last letter to the editor at the Clearwater Times. I’d like to thank all the people who called to thank me for calling a spade a spade. If anyone would like a copy of the letter that wasn’t printed, just give me a phone call; I’m in the phone book.
