War torn

Dear Editor,As I write, there have been one more death and three more serious Canadian casualties in our undeclared war in Afghanistan and the experts are warning us to expect more to come. And for what reason this suffering except to support Bush's so called 'war on terrorism'. In effect our troops serve to free up U.S. troops to go fight in the illegal and immoral war in Iraq. So good for Jack Layton to be the only leader to raise the question of what are we doing there and to call for a halt to further troop deployments.That the Greens, whose values include non violence have been silent on this matter speaks volumes about the current direction of the party. This and the NDP'S committment to mandatory polluter pay legislation and electoral reform, mean that this time I will be voting for the NDP. Hopefully on Jan.24 the environment and peace will have a voice in Parliment.Michael Oddy,Leader NSGP
