The Gazette can't count

Re: "Gollum and Avril battle Saddam and Bush for headlines," Jan. 10

To The Editor:

Contrary to Emmett Macfarlane's distorted view of the Canadian political landscape, the membership of the New Democratic Party is far from "three guys watching the nationally televised debate" who "were too high to remember the candidates' names."

Since the current leadership race for the federal NDP began, membership to the party has exploded. As of Dec. 16, membership has increased by 42 per cent in just seven months. Since June, 27,168 new members have signed on, bringing the size of the party to 81,962 Canadians. Membership has risen in every single province and territory.

Despite what The Gazette would have you believe, the leadership race has touched on countless issues other than the legalization of marijuana and the belief that the United States is evil.

So for this week's "News for Dummies," how about you check your facts; save your bias and please leave your editorial comments for editorials.
