Letter: Racist tones thinly veiled

Dear Editor,

Re: “‘Exclusionary signage’ still prevalent,” News, Sept. 23.

article continues below

Quebec regulates language on signs. Those of us Anglophones would find that uncomfortable if we suddenly ended up living there.

Let’s stop the racism — as veiled as some try to make it. I encourage more interaction and understanding between language groups, but I certainly don’t want to legislate it. 

This issue is being blown out of proportion.

Our world is changing quickly. Let’s tolerantly try to accept the time lags in cross-cultural understanding that are associated with rapid change. 

A generation or two from now, we will be a multi-lingual community and much richer for it.

Bob Ransford
