Lately a person cannot help but see some hateful stickers on cars and trucks or flags. I’m referring to the F… Trudeau messages. These expressions go beyond what I would consider free speech, and do nothing to further constructive debate or difference of opinions. I do remind these folks who express themselves in this way that our prime minister has children who should not/never be subjected to this type of messaging. I fully understand that many people are upset with our federal government, but the best way to express yourself is at the polling station and vote. If we want our politicians to act in a proper respectful manner then we as citizens should do the same. Peter Stoffer Fall River, N.S.
