“Shame on You” Dear Murray Lewis, As a subscriber, I have to say that I am appalled by your editor’s letter in the July/August 2016 issue [“A Rose Is a Rose”]. As an individual, you are certainly entitled to your opinion on assisted dying, but as an editor, you should remain neutral. Shame on you for taking advantage of your position to belittle and shame the legitimate view of many others in preference to your own opinion. Consider my subscription cancelled. [Name withheld for reasons of privacy] via e-mail   On the Other Hand... Dear Murray, I read Good Times...

The Assisted Dying Debate Goes On Regarding your June editorial on Bill C-14 and the issue of medical assistance in dying, the real question is: Do we have control over our own lives or not?

LETTERS Readers Reply I loved the May editor’s letter about where to settle in retirement. My recommendation for you is to look into moving to New Brunswick. We live in Cambridge-Narrows, a village less than an hour from Oromocto, Fredericton, and Sussex.

I think a lot of people are like you—looking for...

Though I plan to have my taxes done professionally, the article gave me ideas about what to be aware of and what to make sure I mention to the professional. I think those who want to do their own taxes will appreciate that the article takes into account seniors and their particular concerns and questions. Keep up the good work!

More Books! In “The Joy of Discovery” (January/February), you mention author Peter May. I hope you read his Lewis trilogy in order: The Blackhouse, The Lewis Man, The Chessmen. Best books ever. His China Thrillers and Enzo Files are also good stories. If you branch out from Scottish stories, Lee Child is a must (his Jack Reacher series), as is Michael Connelly. Of course, Canada has its own Louise Penny, who writes about the people in a small town in Quebec. Her books have a very Canadian feel.
