Showing Some Love For the ‘3Rs…Rants, Raves & Rumours’ Column in Our Print Paper

Dear Stephen (Editor),

I very much enjoy reading your 3Rs section in the Meaford Independent. Every week, you address local topics and issues, or just your thoughts in a witty, thoughtful way that makes me feel like you are my neighbour chatting directly with me.

In the May 30 issue (The 3Rs…Rants, Raves & Rumours, May 30, 2024 print edition), you rant about the red, white and blue bunting on Meaford Hall. It is nice to homage the town’s beginnings, but I agree that at the present time, we are Canadians and the red and white would have been more appropriate.

This brings up a very important issue…. After the death of Queen Elizabeth, many people are suggesting that we do not recognize King Charles as our head of state and that we should cut ties to the Monarchy.

I agree the culture of the Monarchy should be celebrated here in the same way as all cultures are free to be celebrated in this country. However, the implications of King Charles being the head of state must be seriously examined. For example, should King Charles be the commander-in-chief of the Canadian armed forces and have supreme command and control of our army. I think not. What do our readers think?
