Dear Prime Minister Trudeau,
I’m writing to you as a concerned citizen about the arrest and later release without charge, of David Menzies, reporter of Rebel News. While Mr. Menzies was later released without charge, this action by the RCMP and York Regional Police signal to me a growing concern many Canadians have: the increasing nature of politics in civil society. I would like to believe that no reporter, regardless of political affiliation should be harassed and reprimanded the way Mr. Menzies was. It is also very disturbing to see the officer rush up to Mr. Menzies, and physically restrain him, when it is clear there is no physical threat Mr. Menzies posed.
