Flatly Outrageous

By Ulli Diemer

Letter to the Editor, Globe and Mail:

P. L. Reid's outrageous claim (Letters, April 15) that the Fraser Institute is the 21st-century equivalent of the Flat Earth Society cannot be allowed to pass unchallenged.

To be sure, there is a superficial similarity, in that both organizations cling to obsolete world-views in the face of overwhelming evidence to the contrary.

But the Flat Earth Society never tried to destroy medicare, undermine public education, wreck social programs, nor sell Canada out to the United States. There is no call to sully its reputation by comparing its harmless notions to the far less benign ideology of the Fraser Institute.
