De­lay pa­rade

The London Free Press - - LETTERS -

I agree with Brian Har­ris’s let­ter Re­mem­ber first (Nov. 3) about the Lon­don Santa Claus pa­rade at the same time peo­ple will be gath­er­ing at the ceno­taph. This is in­sen­si­tive to those who have fallen in ser­vice to our coun­try, those who made it home but not un­af­fected and those who are serv­ing to­day. It is also in­sult­ing to the fam­i­lies of the vets.

Is it that hard to let us have a day to pay our re­spects to the peo­ple who made it pos­si­ble for us and those peo­ple in­volved in the Santa Claus pa­rade to live in a free coun­try and wait one week for the pa­rade?

Other place have their pa­rades closer to Christ­mas. I’m hop­ing that the new coun­cil will lis­ten. Mar­garet A. Robert­son Lon­don
