THIS refers to the news report ‘PM Ashraf urges action to shun despondency’ (Dec 21). I, as a Pakistani Canadian, agree with him.

A country of 190 million people full of untapped and unexploited mineral and natural resources surely has a ‘bright future ahead’.

Numerous difficulties and problems cannot deter us from working for the progress of our country.

Perhaps, holding of  relatively free and fair elections will throw a patriotic collective leadership. At least we should hope so.
