Opening comments:  More at the end.

The Mississauga News knows Roy Willis is a candidate for Mayor and usually that would mean the media should not publish letters by a candidate during an election as it needs to be seen as impartial and not giving any candidate greater media exposure.  In this case they leave off the fact he is a candidate and print his letter really fast.

The Mississauga News - Sept. 27, 2006

Wrong message

Dear Editor:

Re: "Would be politicians," The News, Sept. 20 edition.

The lead story in The Mississauga News should be a source of debate and promote thought and discussion.

However, Joseph Chin has converted the honour of writing above the banner into a uniquely banal and trite commentary on the upcoming municipal election. Without help of interviews or insight, Chin relies on words found in the archives of The News and crafted a story so that he would sound profound and that forty or so candidates seeking office would sound boring.

What a disservice to the public!

There are issues this election that require exploration and discussion. For instance, we have had over two decades of incumbency that has led to development without thought, and the concerns of developers rank ahead of the development of a viable community.

As a candidate for mayor myself, I do not care whether Chin does not understand the dynamics of Mississauga politics or whether he so takes sides that he cannot appear impartial. I do care when he does a disservice to the voter and induces apathy by reporting -- inaccurately -- that there is little attention that need be paid.

There is a need for attention. There is a need for focus and there is a need for dialogue. Let it begin and lit it be strong. Change Chin's hymnal and let The Mississauga News report the news, not sedate the reader.

Roy Willis
