shire pud­ding and mint jelly with the roast beef. She took pride in every­thing in­clud­ing the ta­ble set­ting. I have liked York­shire pud­ding ever since, the mint jelly not so much.

I com­pare this strong woman to the snowflakes I see in the me­dia who are dis­traught about Don­ald Trump win­ning the Amer­i­can Pres­i­den­tial elec­tion. I in­clude Cana­dian snowflakes with the Amer­i­can ones. Many of the univer­sity elites had to re­treat to their “safe places” as they were “trig­gered” by his vic­tory. They and most of the me­dia con­tinue to show a lack of class and re­spect, many protest­ing vi­o­lently. I have a say­ing we used on the ranch when you got hurt or things were tough “suck it up princess.” Un­like the snowflakes in the US and Canada, Joan did suck it up and dis­played what the movie por­trayed as “True Grit.” I have a lot of re­spect for her and the thou­sands of women like her who sac­ri­ficed and en­dured to make a good life for their fam­i­lies and neigh­bours. I have no re­spect for those who refuse to ac­cept the re­sults of a demo­cratic elec­tion be­cause they don’t like the re­sult. I thank God for the legacy of Joan and women like her. We are di­min­ished by her pass­ing. Gord Snell
