Gee, I think I am ready to wear the “yellow vest” – but being Canadian rather than French, it would not be acceptable.
But I am ready to “protest” a few things! All I have to do is read our wonderful Peace Arch News Friday.
Boys and girls ordering Skip The Dishes, upsetting the normal stricture in and around the school (Crackdown on online deliveries at two schools, Dec. 7). Please make your lunch, eat in the great school cafeteria. There are people lining up at the food bank; children go hungry.
“Elderly people play bumper cars with their vehicle until they get caught. Any proactive ideas how to deal with this?” asked a reader (Need to keep all ages safe, Dec. 7 letters). I have one: Sign up as a volunteer driver with Sources, a wonderful community organization. They take seniors to appointments, etc.
By the way, when my son was hit in a crosswalk in White Rock, the driver was not a senior! When we were hit from behind while stopped to let a pedestrian cross in a marked crosswalk in White Rock, the driver was a young man in a convertible. I suffer from whiplash since. Poor driving habits – a big problem with all age groups!
Your online Question of the Week: “Are Canada’s national broadcasters right to ban ‘controversial holiday favourite’ Baby It’s Cold Outside from their playlists?” How hypocritical is that? An innocent song, written long ago. Today’s movies, TV shows and lyrics of some songs seem to ignore boundaries.
The big issue in the previous decision was that a student was “made” to wear a jersey to cover up (Message received: ‘Don’t distract boys’, Dec. 5). What else do we expect our teachers to deal with?
I am done “wearing a yellow vest.” I am concentrating on the pages in Peace Arch News that tells us about all the great things that are going around the Peninsula.
