One Cowichan heavy handed, self-righteous over letter

One Cowichan claims to encourage engagement in democracy and encourage people to participate in the democratic process yet they would deny the democratic process to Mr. Aiken because he opposes their agenda. They also would claim rights to eliminate all letters criticizing One Cowichan from the Citizen. Personally I don’t agree with Aiken’s point of view but I respect his right to freedom of speech. I do not appreciate One Cowichan’s heavy handedness and self-righteous attitude in this matter.
