Columnist must be a smart guy

Writer calls Tom Fletcher out for views on BCTF court situation

Re: Off to school, and off to court (B.C. Views, Sept. 17)

I must commend you on having Tom Fletcher on your staff.

In past articles he has shown how he is smarter than all those scientists, including Nobel Prize winners, who think they have proven that human actions are effecting our climate and that something should be done about it.

Now in Wednesday’s paper he suggests he understands our laws better than a sitting judge.

And how dare the BCTF present “arguments that are technical,” everyone knows that the legal system has nothing to do with technical points it is all about grand statements on justice.  I don’t understand why on his byline you don’t include all the PhDs and law degrees he must hold.
