Ignore city hate-mongers

Re: We should say 'merci' to a local hero (June 3). I had the privilege to meet with Robert-Falcon Ouellette recently, and was impressed by the depth and breadth of his knowledge about the issues Winnipeg is facing.

Being "old school," I was delighted by his courteous and polite demeanour, and was happy to see that he demonstrates a passion for Winnipeg that speaks to the soul of the city I fell in love with 38 years ago when I made it my home.

As a regular recipient of hate mail, I can understand Robert's pain. Hate-mongers aren't worth losing sleep over -- they are tortured souls who only diminish their own humanity, and for this we should pity them.

The fact that Ouellette didn't brag about saving a life speaks volumes about his excellent upbringing.

Thanks to Gordon Sinclair Jr. for this story; I will share it with my grandsons.
