LETTER: Children love the free local air show in Chilliwack


Just two quick comments. First is the editorial cartoon for May 22 which I felt was well to the point. How true the captions, we seem so eager to do the right thing overseas but cannot do the right thing at home, e.g. child poverty, homelessness and mental illness issues.

Second comment has to do with the letter from Kathleen McCune. Living by the airport I have experienced Mr. Matheson flying overhead on numerous occasions.

Just as point of information Ms McCune, it does not happen all that often and not for long durations and above all—when the grandkids hear him, they run outside to watch him because they love his flying.
