Harper previously opposed Mandela's release

Would Mandela Applaud Us Now? Thank you for asking such pointed questions in your editorial (The Daily News, Dec. 11).

The answer to all must be a resounding no. I’m no fan of former prime minister Brian Mulroney but compared to Stephen Harper, he’s a true statesman.

Please consider this fact — Harper was a founding member of a group called The Northern Foundation which opposed the release of Nelson Mandela from prison and the ending of apartheid in South Africa. The Reform Party had its roots in this organization and they continue throughout today’s Conservative Party.

Shameful.
