Well, if city councillors and the local newspaper feel it is okay to do so, then so do I.
It appears that it is going to take some time to decide what shall be the outcome of a case of a teacher who (allegedly) force-fed a plum to a Grade 3 student (twice) back in 2010. Apparently the complaint wasn't registered until the following year.
Re: Flaherty finds deep wells of stupidity, In My Opinion, by Matthew Claxton, Burnaby NOW, June 1.
We are told that campaign disclosure documents from the last municipal election are supposed to be made available for public viewing. Apparently they are, if you are able to get yourself down to city hall and find the city clerk's office and fumble with a huge binder (likely the only copy in existence) and then not be duped by several red herrings, and should you have the grit and determination and perseverance to dig to the very bottom of this tome, you may eventually find figures that are (purportedly) the statements for which Mr. Lau came seeking.
Re: Mayor backs Topp in NDP race, Burnaby NOW, March 14.
Now I can't speak for all guys, and I think it has nothing to do with sexuality per se, nor to sexual preference, and it certainly has nothing to do with environmental or social conditioning, but I have never liked the colour pink (except on the golf course, for some undefined reason).
Mr. Larry Bennett (Future predictions, Letters to the editor, Burnaby NOW, Jan. 6) couldn't find heterosexism in his 30-year-old U.S. dictionary. I suggest he buy the Canadian Oxford Dictionary or another contemporary dictionary.
In his misinformed letter (Future predictions, Letter to the editor, Burnaby NOW, Jan. 6) trying to justify homophobia, Larry Bennett attempts to lump every religion into his misconceived notion of what religions teach about homosexuality.
Seeing as I seem not to have got my two cents worth on the matter in question (though not from lack of trying) I think that it is time for a little commentary from those not quite so enamoured with the whole matter as are the Burnaby Teachers' Association and, seemingly the staff and those who devise the editorial policy of this paper. I am referring, of course to the 5.45. policy.
Re: Some beliefs have consequences, Letters to the Editor, Burnaby NOW, Sept. 14. Hugh Vincelette warns us (threatens?) that "the usual right-wing suspects," whom, he claims, are liars, slanderers and defamers, who have "an inherent disrespect for human and civil rights, and human dignity," have no right to be opposed to a "program meant to foster tolerance and non-violence." Oh, is that what he is doing in this letter?
