LETTERS: Don’t be paranoid

The minute we start to live in fear is the minute the terrorists have won. Think about it.

Does anyone out there happen to know the number to report “Barbaric Cultural Practices”? I have a white Christian friend I would like to report for having his infant son circumcised. There is a lady friend of mine in Ontario who is actually afraid ISIL will someday land on Canadian soil.

Please have a little confidence in our intelligence and counter terrorism people. They are well trained and know what they are doing.

Ladies and gentlemen, the point is, we cannot listen to the paranoia that is being spread and start living under an umbrella of fear.

The minute we start to live in fear is the minute the terrorists have won. Think about it.
