Troubling tactic

Dear editor:
The economy of Northwestern Ontario relies very heavily on tourism, so I think we should look at how the federal election may affect this.
The simple fact is that the vast majority of tourists coming into our area are American. This is why the Liberal tactics in this election trouble me.
Paul Martin’s Liberals are working very hard to make the Conservatives look like puppets of evil Washington and this is being noticed south of the border. Americans are getting offended—and this is bad for you and me.
To put it very plainly, Paul Martin is trying to win the election by insulting our customers. If he wins, you can expect fewer and fewer tourists coming here and spending money at our businesses.
After all, would you want to go on vacation to a country that is hostile to your nation? I wouldn’t.
