Letters to the Editor
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
