Kudos to your editor for publishing Michael Coren’s Opinion piece, which acknowledged discrimination against both LGBT and indigenous people. As a 74-year-old gay Catholic, I finally read about something that is close to my needs: empathy. Not all snowbirds are heterosexual, and some LGBT people feel quite ignored in publications that cater to the needs of us older folk. Thank you, Michael Coren, for opening a conversation about marginalized communities.
Ed.: Mr. Coren is a very, very good writer. Mr. Coren is also very contentious and loves to set the “cat among the pigeons.” We regularly get very critical e-mails from various factions such as the Jews, the Catholics, the Anglicans, the agnostics, the Muslims and the atheists. They are unanimous – they wish us to fire Coren. To me, he is a disturbing bit of fresh air in a very confused world, and his views on the LGBT community are right on.
