Search for truth
February 8, 2008
Re: Sweet vindication for crusading engineer, Feb. 5.
Hats off to Ted Cooper. He selflessly committed himself to the greater public good in his fight against the ill-conceived plans to fill and develop the Carp River floodplain. It is greatly appreciated that Citizen reporter Patrick Dare and columnist Randall Denley brought Ted Cooper’s story to the people of Ottawa since he has been silently working under difficult conditions on their behalf.
Ted Cooper’s actions highlight the importance for each us to search for the truth and not be afraid to speak up when you believe something is fundamentally flawed.
