Are you Are you getting tired of the scandals?

Dear editor:

Are you getting tired of it all? I refer to the mayor’s crack-smoking scandal in Toronto and the $90,000 PMO payoff of Mike Duffy’s pay-back debt.

Scandals delight and titillate but they turn our attention from the real shortcomings of Ford and Harper.

The media’s insatiable pursuit of the nitty gritty details of the scandals is misplaced. Smoking some dope or paying Duffy’s debt pale in comparison to Ford’s constant negative attitude to anything progressive, such as accommodating commuting cyclists, or Harper’s failure to commit to the Kyoto Accords.

We the voters, and the media, should concentrate on these real crimes against preserving the environment and therefore against humanity
