Per­spec­tive im­por­tant

Sentinel-Review (Woodstock) - - OPINION -

U.S. mad­ness has crossed the bor­der: Canada is join­ing the “take down the statue” frenzy south of the bor­der.

Sir John A. Mac­don­ald lived in a dif­fer­ent time with is­sues per­ti­nent to that era. He had con­stituents to sat­isfy and busi­ness to set­tle. He did what was needed, what, in that time, he thought was best.

To take is­sue with de­ci­sions made in years gone by is fruit­less; it changes noth­ing. Rather than mimic the mad­ness in the States, do what the theme song of Frozen ad­vo­cates and “let it go.”

What hap­pened in by­gone years can­not harm us now. To do oth­er­wise is to dis­play a pet­ti­ness that is as sense­less and it is use­less.

Mary Tay­lor, St. Thomas
