Fact checking needed

Dear Editor,

The author claims that Dr. Tim Ball is an “expert” on climatology and on the environment in the article titled Carbon tax – split decision, May 9, 2019, pg. 2.

Dr. Ball was a professor of geography at the University of Winnipeg, not a professor of climatology nor a professor on the environment.

He (Dr. Ball) claims “that almost everything that we hear on radio and on television is propaganda and fake news”.

Yes, we should be careful about what we see, hear, or read in the news, in social media (emails, Facebook, Instagram), the gossip at the local watering hole, or even in letters to the editors.

Folks should do some research/fact checking before coming to a conclusion, in my opinion.
