On Sept. 18, the Free Press published an amusing editorial cartoon showing Tom Mulcair poking his head out from behind Justin Trudeau, attempting to get attention.
A valid point was made, but this situation is of the press's making. I am reluctant to cry conspiracy, but the Free Press is among the media outlets that have studiously avoided giving air to Mulcair's comments while fawning over Trudeau.
After the federal NDP's caucus retreat, Mulcair attacked the Liberals over their substantial role in creating the widening gap between the rich and the rest of us. Not a word of this made it to the Free Press.
Following an editorial board meeting with Trudeau, your Oct. 10 front page is devoted to several pictures of him.
Could you not make even a pretence of being even-handed? For the record, I am not a card-carrying New Democrat. I am a citizen concerned about the issues that face this country, and expect the press to fulfil its obligation to keep the public informed.
