Dear Mr. Makin:

On behalf of the membership of our organization, please accept our gratitude for crafting an excellent and informative article on the subject of Mr. Dueck's denaturalization and deportation trial. I'll get right to the point.

Too many of our "mainstream" newspapers either ignore news items such as this, or else their reporters place a spin on them in order to present the issue in as inoffensive a light as possible towards those lobbies who support the perversion of civil liberties and bypassing of the rule of law. I don't know what such reporters and news outlets are afraid of. Could it be the REAL truth of the "war crimes" issue?

I encourage you to work on a piece that would seriously examine the motives of those in Canada (and the U.S.) who propagate the myth that only one group suffered horrors during the Second World War, and thus, that only they require publicity, "justice", reimbursement, recognition, and on and on. Could it be this is nothing short of a desperate diversion from deeds committed by them during the 70-year Soviet holocaust, and continued sins against mid-East victims today? Think about it.

Mr. Harasymiw: Thank you for your note. I have contemplated doing a piece incorporating some of the elements to which you refer. It is clear something is going very wrong with the war crimes prosecution strategy, and I agree that it does not come under much probing by the press. Should I do such a story in the future, I may contact you.

Yours truly,
Kirk Makin
