Pro-life banner: It’s all about freedom of expression
I read KTW’s front-page article on Sept. 24 (‘Word play or an attack on rights?’) regarding the debate over the pro-life banner and had so much to say.
I then turned to page A8 and Dale Bass’s column (‘Not exactly a banner day for debate at Kamloops City Hall’) and found that it was already said perfectly.
No matter which side of the abortion issue one stands on, the real debate is one of freedom of thought, belief, opinion and expression.
Interestingly, sadly but notably, Allysa Gredling, who wrote a letter to city council arguing the banner was “discriminatory” and lacking in respect, is the one who comes across as least tolerant.
Bravo, Dale Bass, on a well thought-out, well-stated and absolutely sensible column.
