LETTER: Time to get Canadian again

Ashamed at some of the things that are going on here

I read the Nov. 18 column (editor Andrew Holota) with great interest. I am in total agreement with you.

All who come to this country came for a better life. I am a very proud Canadian and am ashamed at some of the things going on here today – setting a mosque on fire, people wanting to stop helping refugees in their time of need.

This sort of behaviour is not from the Canada I was born in and have grown up in. For the most part we as Canadians have come from all over the world and we seem to forget that fact. Go back a few generations and take a hard look at those that helped to form this great country.

Social media can be a good thing, but it can also bring out some very hateful people that would not be so vocal face to face.

I think it’s time to get Canadian again. Things seem to be slipping away.
