Kudos to Lorne Reimer of the wonderful weekly read Friday AM for speaking out about intolerance (Editor’s Notes: June 5 2015 Page 12). Check out Lorne’s full commentary.
There was a letter in last week’s Lakeshore News that criticized columnist Sally Scales for welcoming the large sports and education gathering of Muslims that took place in Salmon Arm recently. I received a similar letter that I chose not to print.
While there are indeed serious discussions needed about assimilation, religion and violence, the narrow-mindedness Lorne refers to is not representative of our town.
Thanks Lorne for speaking out on my behalf as well.
