LETTERS: City better off going Dutch

Re: ‘Friendly exchange’, May 27 letters.

I like to comment on Wolfgang Schmitz’s letter to the editor regarding the May 8 article, Cities become partners.

I totally agree with him that instead of an agreement with China for a partner, we should make closer ties with a city in the Netherlands located at the North Sea.

It is a fact that our country has very close ties to Holland, Canadians are loved over there and, yes, our veterans are less able to travel due to advanced age.

It would give our youngsters a chance to experience the appreciation the Dutch people have for Canada still after all these years.
