Kautious Ken here: In a news release today, regional Chair Ken Seiling stated, "I hope the view of council is not construed to be anything more than it is - support and concern for the safety and well-being of Canadian soldiers everywhere carrying out a job assigned by the Canadian Government."
Slightly OT ... A long time ago one of our local self styled opinion makers (Sinclair) tried to make an issue of this trend. He used an unbelievably crass smear of people who display the ribbons and attempted to create the impression that there is an underlying political statement in the act.He was roundly and rightly slammed for it!You'd think that besides the fact that public officials are supposed to have actual work to do that they might be less clueless!! Just a little?
PGP - So who is Sinclair? A pundit?
Cautious is right, Joanne. Still, let's take our victories where and when we can.Btw, and sorry to be a little bit more OT than pgp (but still to do with defense), but here's a common sense editorial from the Toronto Star.
Wow! The Star is really starting to gain my respect. Must be because of Fred Kuntz at the helm.
Who's Sinclair?Columnist Gordon Sinclair Jr. frequent contributor to the WPG Free Press
Columnist Gordon Sinclair Jr. frequent contributor to the WPG Free PressAh... son of the Gordon Sinclair of the Toronto CFRB fame?
A few interesting articles in the Record this morning:Police can wear pins for the troops.And an op-ed by a psychology professor. I knew without even reading it what side of the fence he was going to be on.
Yes Gordon Sinclair Jr.'s father was that same icon .....
Wow, that's interesting since I recall Gord Sr. being somewhat conservative and very supportive of the U.S.
Brian, when you say "our victories", do you have a group in mind for whom you see this as a victory, or do you just mean that it's good to see people outwardly expressing their hopes for the troops' safe return?
