Worse things than taking knee
Dear Editor: Ian Macdonald of Penticton wrote, in part, in a letter to the editor: “I am ashamed. I am a Canadian who does not support U.S. football players that never made the NFL, using our Canadian football teams to express their views. They should all be fined $1,000 to be donated to a food bank in their area” (Herald, Oct. 6).
Harry DeRosier of Summerland wrote, in part: “If there ever was a description of bigotry, bullying and racism, it is amplified by the dissolute actions portrayed by your refusal to stand for the national anthem” (Herald, Oct. 6).
I’m a Canadian. I am also ashamed to be a Canadian, but for a different reason. Would someone out there please tell me what is worse:
A multi millionaire on his knee during the national anthem, or the two hundred and some thousand veterans sleeping on city streets? Joseph Hayes Lake Country
