ODYSSEY OF A GREAT LAKES SAILOR
ODYSSEY OF A GREAT LAKES SAILOR – The Untold Story Of Canada Steamship Lines Paul Martins Shipping Empire Years 1973-1994.
You shall judge a man by his foes as well as by his friends.When there is no enemy within, the enemies outside cannot hurt you.
I WOULD LIKE to start this odyssey by introducing a letter, which I wrote to Mr Martin, when he was a rookie member of the Canadian Parliament, and for which he did not have the decency to respond. His legacy is not what is written about him by others. If future generations of Canadians are to believe history of what makes a great nation, it is by examples set by others who provide a great moral and ethical leadership.
I am not a journalist. All that I had learnt has been self taught. I had learnt in my early years as a young man growing up in British India that through nonviolence many things can be achieved and that all things in life are negotiable and I truly believe that the Pen is mightier than the sword.
This is not the Canada I once knew. I am a first generation Canadian who immigrated to this country seeking to make a better life for my family and I, and I am sure like most other immigrants and a lot of people in this country believed that this great country had much to offer.
