Dear Senator Bayek: Thank you for speaking your mind on recent issues relating to residential schools and the accountability of First Nations bands. Increasingly these days, opinions that do not follow prescribed 'politically correct' parameters are dismissed as offensive.

Although we supposedly live in a country where freedom of speech prevails, I know many people who are growing 'afraid' to speak their minds. Media increasingly present issues as though they are but one dimensional and that any other viewpoint is wrong. However, I hold dear my freedom to independently form and express my own opinion.

Thank you for having the courage to speak out. I am very glad you are a member of my Canadian Senate. Regards, George
