An Open Letter to William Shatner; Why I am Boycotting Houston Space City Con

Standard

Dear Mr. Shatner,

I was SO excited to hear that you would be attending this year’s Space City Comic Con in Houston Texas this year! I grew up in a Star Trek household, and have been a fan since I played the role of Captain Kirk in fifth grade when the backstop was my Enterprise. As a fellow Canadian living in Houston I thought I would finally get to meet my idol. This is why it breaks my heart to say that I won’t be there. Make no mistake, this was NOT an easy decision, but I decided in good conscience that I could not do it. I made this decision upon hearing on good authority that the Space City Con failed to remit payment to my favorite charity, the Kids Need to Read program, which is sponsored by my other favorite Canadian Captain, Nathan Fillion. The Kids Need to Read program was the charity being supported by the Space City Con, monies were collected in the name of this charity and were not forwarded as promised. I was devastated to hear this news when I found out that the charity was not participating in the con because of this issue.

So Mr Shatner, it is with great sadness in my heart that I will not come to meet you, and it will probably be my last chance to do so.

Blessings to you, and love you!

 

Your greatest Canadian Fan,
