Leave sleep­ing dogs lie

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - EDITORIAL -

I write to­day in re­sponse to a let­ter on Tues­day, July 18, by Earl Lockerby, “A Slip­pery Slope.”

I agree with his let­ter 100 per cent and, al­though I may not have all the his­tory to quote be­hind me, I can eas­ily see, and so should oth­ers, that he makes some very valid points.

We can­not start re­nam­ing or delet­ing names of places, churches, schools and en­tire com­mu­ni­ties be­cause of his­tory. We need to ac­cept our his­tory, what­ever it is or was, and move on with dig­nity.

Like Earl says, his­tory is as it is, or let’s leave sleep­ing dogs lie. Kathy Birt, Mount Ste­wart
