Our readers write about a perceived unfairness to Hamilton Tiger Cat players and about immigration.

Referees ruining football

The Hamilton Tiger-Cats have a long-standing reputation for playing “smash mouth football,” thus the referees focus their attention on the Ticats and forget that it takes two to tango to make it a game.

As a result, all teams playing against them are relatively ignored.

I don’t care who the referees call a penalty against, just get it right, and don’t judge past performances.

Officials are ruining every sport, throwing a flag or blowing a whistle on almost every play. Put those flags in your pockets to blow your nose.

Granted, some players take more liberties than others, but let’s be fair, and let the players decide the outcome.

The CFL has admitted to making wrong calls in the past, so fire the incompetent miscreants outright.

Canadians put on the back burner

Re: Hate is not going to spread in Niagara, Oct. 2

Canada has always been a country which opened its doors for immigrants.

After the Second World War immigrants came here with nothing. There was no social assistance and life was tough. With hard work and adapting to their new country many immigrants built good lives for their families.

They built Canada into a prosperous nation based on Christian principles. It was ruled by law and order.

Now Prime Minister Justin Trudeau with his left-wing agenda is throwing everything out of the window, falsely calling it a human rights issue. His open border policy is of great concern for safety and security.

Illegals among which there are criminal elements are abusing and overwhelming our health services, our social services, our affordable housing services, etc. Many Canadian pensioners and low-income citizens, have been put on the back burner. That is shameful.

Trudeau is favouring Islam above all other religions and with Motion-103 he wants to shut down free speech. Criticizing is not hate speech. Left-wing organizations aggressively attack and shut down anyone who has a different opinion, as we saw in Niagara Falls. Anyone who doesn’t agree with them is a racist and a discriminator, while they themselves are the worst. The left is against democracy and freedoms and the media is part of them.
