I find it passing strange to read the comments made by the editorial page editor placed on the front page of The Weekend Telegram on Saturday, Sept. 7. Apart from the placement of the article within the paper, the comments might well be viewed by many as being inappropriate coming from an editor holding such a position within the paper.
The many accolades received by the editor for his numerous outside writings are acknowledged and respected. However, one would not be inclined to accept that they carry with them the right to disregard or detract from the standard which we come to associate with — and, indeed, expect from — The Telegram.
Disagreements on policy issues notwithstanding, I believe there is an obligation to maintain public respect for this province’s highest office. Demeaning that office risks demeaning us all.
