Library Blues in the Blue Mountains

To the Editor of the Meaford Independent,

It's been heartening for us in The Town of the Blue Mountains to read your paper's well-reported coverage of the recent crisis in the Meaford library board and its swift resolution. In addition to showing you believe in the importance of libraries, your reports demonstrate two things that we have yet to learn here: first, that it's not uncommon for library boards and the councils that appoint them to have serious disagreements; and second, that the best resolution to any library conflict or crisis is almost always to be found in compliance with the Public Libraries Act (PLA) and the board's own bylaws.

For that to happen, cool heads and goodwill have to prevail, and that ultimately seems to have been the case in Meaford, despite a few missteps along the way.

Not so much in Thornbury.

Reader's Thoughts on Quebec City Mosque Shooting

Dear Editor,

I am thinking about the attack on the Mosque and realize that it is not about hating Muslims; it is just about hate. Muslims are just the ‘flavour of the month’.

When my husband came from Scotland he was hated because he was an immigrant and spoke funny. The Jews know all about hate from ancient times. The First Nations were hated and abused from the first settlers. It has always been based on ignorance, fear of the unknown, , and need for power.
