Corporations are not above the law

Dear Editor,

I am writing to express my frustration with the long history the Canadian government has of cozying up to corporations and putting the law aside for them.
Justin Trudeau has, throughout his term in office, demonstrated he is willing to ignore Indigenous rights in order to satisfy corporate greed, including foreign corporations.
Everyone, including corporations, should have to follow the law equally, and when they break the law, they should be held responsible. Corporations should not have special rights just because they are “job creators.”
Corporate profit is not enough of a benefit for everyone to allow them to circumnavigate the laws we have in place. This is our country, and they must be held accountable for their injustices. Our planet and environment ought to be placed far above the ranks of corporate profit.

It’s time we take action, I call on you to investigate and write about these injustices, that politicians may understand how mad their constituents are and that we are willing to take action. If they will not listen, then we shall swiftly remove them from office.
