A class­less act

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - EDITORIAL -

Re: “Time for to­geth­er­ness,” The Guardian, July 19: Leo De­veau is way off base with his un­kind words about Mi’kmaq Keptin John Joe Sark. He re­turned his Order of P.E.I. on a mat­ter of prin­ci­ple — a sure sign of per­sonal in­tegrity.

In my con­ver­sa­tions with him, I have al­ways found him to be a de­cent, gen­tle and prin­ci­pled per­son.

Mr. De­veau, to make up for his class­less act, should apol­o­gize to John Joe for his rude and in­sen­si­tive char­ac­ter as­sas­si­na­tion of a Mi’kmaq Elder.
