Ford interview cruel

As much as I dislike Toronto Mayor Rob Ford and do not condone his embarrassing antics, his appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live was so self-aggrandizing for the host it was unconscionable (Toronto mayor sweats it out on Jimmy Kimmel's hot seat, Mar. 5).

I'm sure Ford knew he would be lampooned, but Kimmel's treatment of the troubled mayor bordered on cruel. For the first time, I saw Ford as a human being with feelings; faults and flaws notwithstanding, he didn't deserve the dressing down he received.

Americans have enough of their own buffoons, they don't need to profit from ours. Kimmel's treatment of Ford was inhumane.

Student's story inspires

On behalf of the War Amps, I would like to thank Elizabeth Fraser for her article featuring Connor Nykyforak, a local member of the War Amps Child Amputee (CHAMP) Program (Student singing War Amps praises, Mar. 3).

Connor's zest for life is an inspiration to all. Through CHAMP, young amputees are encouraged to develop a positive attitude toward their amputation and live to their full potential.

Coverage like yours helps inform the public of the resources and programs available to child amputees. The War Amps receives no government grants and its programs are possible solely through public support of our Key Tag and Address Label services.

Judge shows bias

While Tim Killeen was a great defence lawyer, he's showing his bias as a judge (Police tactic earns judges ire, Mar. 5).

Why shouldn't police hold off on charges? The longer a criminal is locked up, the less likely the chances of re-offending, making our streets safer.

Care lacking in home care

Re: Home-care client fears change to the system, Mar. 3.

Tom Landy's fears are well-founded. The article makes clear this administration cares less about the needs of those needing home care than they do about "(improving) conditions for home-care workers who can now count on a guaranteed income."

Dedicated workers are being fired to make room for those whose only concern is their paycheque.

The message comes through loud and clear: If you want home care to suit your needs, hire your own -- something few people who need home care can afford.

U.S. posturing hypocritical

It's profoundly hypocritical for U.S. Secretary of state John Kerry to advise Russian President Vladimir Putin invading a country is "not 21st-century, G8, major-nation behaviour" (Kerry makes promise help is on the way, Mar. 5).

Has Kerry never visited Iraq or Afghanistan? Has he forgotten Grenada, Haiti and Panama?

Surely Kerry remembers Vietnam -- after all, he was there.

Canada would do well to steer clear of the American appetite for invasion and the violent overthrow of sovereign nations. …
