LETTERS: Responsible acts

Recent pictures of children dying while trying to relocate is heartbreaking.

Our response as a nation must be one of compassion and careful diligence. Today’s terrorists are very cunning and calculating.  Any opportunity to take advantage of situations to come to the west with their diabolical motives and destructive intent will be exploited.  Therefore, our government must take time to do due diligence and planning and preparing to take in more refugees.

Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s compassionate well thought out strategy is both responsible and caring.

It is so easy to react emotionally with political motives during a time of crisis in the midst of an election campaign. I am so thankful to have a responsible Prime Minister who combines responsibility with a generous heart.
