For My Democracy Today I am Writing a Letter to the Editor

Have you ever read an article in your paper that just got you so riled up, you wished you could give them a piece of your mind?

Well you can.

Just write a letter to the editor, but be sure to keep it nice. If you swear or make libelous statements, they won't print it.

But this is a perfect opportunity to change, or validate public opinion. If you don't like what this government is doing, say so.

Often there are many others who feel the same way, and reading your words, may give them to courage to speak out too.

This is a link to an alphabetical listing of all newspapers in Canada. You can read current events and most also provide links to 'contact us' or 'letters to the editor'.

You will feel so empowered by this simple action, and you will be taking a proactive stand to defend your democracy.

If you want to share any you wrote, use the comments at the end of this posting, and I will publish them for you. We're all in this together.

  1. Good Afternoon Emily,

    I have been enjoying your posts for sometime. This morning I was inspired to post an outline on my facebook page. I wanted to share it with you, and possibly your readers, if you feel it is worth while. Below is the link.
