Letter: Harper left country in good shape

No doubt history will judge him far more positively than some would like to think. Credit where credit is due, please.

To the editor:

The following are my thoughts in response to the letter Odds Harper a No-show for Dec. 3 Parliament Opening, Dec. 2 Kelowna Capital News.

Well, seems Mr. Harper did attend Parliament. No surprise to us!

Strange that people want to forget the positive things that have been accomplished by others. Shakespeare wrote these words: “The (apparent) evil that men do lives after them, the good is ‘oft interred with their bones.”

Stephen Harper and his colleagues guided our country through some pretty treacherous financial waters and on the whole, managed to leave things in much better shape in more ways than just financially.  Better than we can expect four years from now, if things continue as we now see them.

Of course Mr. Harper showed up at the opening of Parliament.

No doubt history will judge him far more positively than some would like to think. Credit where credit is due, please.

R. Keppy, Kelowna
