Proportional Representation Would be More Than Nice

Editor,

In his editorial “We’re Not Perfect, But There’s No Better Place To Live Than Canada” (June 29/18) Mr. Vance seems to include amongst the things he likes about Canada is the electoral system, although he believes that Proportional Representation would be a nice improvement. In addition he likes the ability of citizens to protest and hold our governments accountable.

I certainly can agree with him about the last two points, but not the first. Throughout my long life I have had to endure voting both federally and provincially under first-past-the-post, an undemocratic system that usually forms governments from a minority of electoral votes, assigning to another four year oblivion the wishes of a majority of voters.

Canada Truly is an Amazing Place to Live

Editor,

I wish to add a resounding endorsement to what you had to say about living in this country, especially the distinction between rights and privileges.

On July 17th at 2 p.m. I will celebrate 50 years to the minute since I arrived in this unbelievably blessed country and I fell in love with it immediately - a love affair that continues to this day.

Celebrate 125 Years of Beautiful Joe

Dear Editor,

As you may know already, this is the 125th birthday of the book Beautiful Joe, written by (Margaret) Marshall Saunders. Time sure flies!

One thing is for sure and that is that the message from Joe to “Be Kind” is still needed today!Abuse of animals and people is still a concern to be aware of.

At Beautiful Joe Heritage Society, we keep that message alive, Be Kind!
