Re: Weighing in on maternity matters, May 6 letters.

With all due respect to letter-writer Eve Henry, I totally agree with her on the old maternity wear, however there are beautiful flowy tops that are bought by many women who are not pregnant.

I don’t recall seeing Kate Middleton dressing in tight tees, yet always looking classy and dignified and also proud to be pregnant.

I know and admire Coun. David Chesney’s “Caribbean Queen.” She is a highly intelligent woman, and is more than capable to change it if she wishes. It is an endearment and absolutely nothing to do with race. Just to enlighten everyone, the term “Caribbean Queen” comes from the fact that Kerlande was crowned “Miss Caribbean Queen” in 1988, hence his endearment.

David is an honest and sincere man, and his heart and soul is in environment and protection of White Rock. More than 1,900 voted for him because we believe in his intentions. He made a mistake and has duly apologized, as council has had to do many times.

Carry on, David. We are here to support you, as you are not an embarrassment to us. We are proud of your stance.

Senga Cowie, White Rock
