A bat­tle won against big­otry

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - EDITORIAL -

About the Con­fed­er­ate bat­tle flag in the yard with the play fort and the cartoon can­nons. I loved the can­nons at first, thought all they needed was a cutout of Yosemite Sam.

But when the flag went up, it ru­ined the tableau. I re­al­ized that an ‘adult’ lived there.

I was de­lighted when the flag was cap­tured - a bat­tle won against ig­no­rance. And big­otry. Now the flag is back – or was back. Don­ald Trump’s 5th col­umn, right here on P.E.I.
