Landscape with Exclusive Brethren
In the interests of fairness and accuracy, the Fundy Post wants you to know that the seven men without ties who appeared to be representing the Exclusive Brethren at the last General Election were acting on their own behalf. They were merely a group of concerned businessmen, family men, taxpayers. I am sure none of you will have any difficulty believing this fact, unlike that curmudgeonly David Farrar.
In the interests of Art, I must plead with Mr Farrar not to call this bunch the Group of Seven. Apart from being the name given to some meeting of world leaders, the Group of Seven was a circle of Canadian artists, rather good ones at that; Please, David, these things matter to me.
