Editor: The colour map above the letter from CUPE Atlantic (The Guardian, Feb. 25/14) is misleading because this is a smoke screen to hide the real intent of the changes by Ottawa.

There isn’t any urban/rural designation of economic zones because this is just a special deal for Gail Shea. The entire nation should be included in the process of the designation of areas of high unemployment so they too could benefit from increased EI benefits just as those who reside in the riding of Egmont.

Since Ottawa doesn’t fund one dollar of EI program, I believe employers and employees (unions) should be involved in making these decisions and they should put constant pressure on Harper to back off and cease his obvious abuse of political power.
