I feel truly horrified by the actions of a few thugs in our community who think that defacing public property and defiling the home of an elected official constitutes a political statement.
It is simply breaking the law and acting in a bullying and cowardly fashion.
I was, however, heartened by the letters from two high school students with their thoughts, both pro and con, for the Banks Crescent development. Kudos to their teacher, Dave Stathers, for leading them through this process of critical analysis of a huge issue in our community.
Our mayor and councillors are elected officials and their job is a thankless one that demands a great commitment of their time doing a job that they feel is worthwhile. They deserve our respect and our thanks.
If you disagree with their position on an issue then please do it in a constructive and respectful manner. Not everyone can get their way but hopefully, some will. That’s just life, folks.
