The November 5 issue of the Nunatsiaq News
contains a letter about the recent time zone change in Nunavut.
The letter is entitled ``Nunavut government rules by tyranny''.
It suggests (among other things) that Nunavut needs ``a better form of
governance where we could really let the government be accountable to us''
It ends as follows:

   (I am requesting now to have my name withheld from this letter, in
   case it is published, because I fear that there would be repercussions
   imposed on me, and my job might be terminated because of the fact that
   I publicly criticized the government in the manner that I did.)
