It will al­ways be Burma to us

RE: Colum­nist wrong to call Myana­mar Burma (April 27)

The Hamilton Spectator - - OPINION -

While I mostly agree with the sec­ond half of Char­lene Bern­hardt’s let­ter, I ob­ject to the first part. My ma­ter­nal grand­par­ents, par­ents, el­dest brother and two sis­ters all have birth cer­tifi­cates stat­ing place of birth Ran­goon Burma, not Yangon Myan­mar. To all of us grow­ing up with it be­ing called Burma, it will al­ways be Burma! Stephen Car­roll, Hamil­ton
