Penticton Western News letter to the editor

Letter: Our political leaders

There are political leaders in our nation who are contributing to a culture of arrogance

It has become very obvious there are political leaders in our nation who are contributing to a culture of arrogance, deception, corruption and entitlement.

This has caused mistrust, skepticism, and division in our country. One does not sow thorns and reap roses. Politicians who take advantage of their position and use their status and power to promote themselves will be caught in the hidden net that they set for others.

They will be snared by the work of their own hands.
