LETTER: If you can't accept the Pride flag flying in Burnaby, leave

Editor: Re: Don’t fly the Pride flag, NOW letters, Aug. 3

Another year, another Pride is in the 2018 history books. As always, a wonderful gathering of accepting diversity.

This letter, however, is in reply to … a certain Mr. Leo Matusicky, (who) “strongly objects” to the flying of the Pride flag over city hall.

Mr. Matusicky, a question for you – are you aware of the accepting diversity of our city? Such a statement, as you are so offended at, is … totally unacceptable in this time and age.

I would invite you to St. Andrew’s Wesley United Church in the downtown core of Vancouver. An affirming, accepting church for all people. You may learn some valuable insight as to acceptance, diversity and, most of all, a word called compassion.

My advice, if you just simply cannot accept the flying of the gay Pride flag at city hall, may I offer an alternative – move. A very simple solution to your situation. 

The gay Pride flag will be flying over city hall for many years to come. That is how we do things here.

Doug Stever-Akesson, Burnaby
