Unity signs encouraging

Democracy works because of tolerance and understanding.

To the Editor,

Thank goodness Premier Pauline Marois’ self-serving quest to divide our country was rebuffed in La Belle Province. Fortunately Pierre Karl Péladeau, the ultra-rich, anti-union media baron had the audacious arrogance—and political inexperience —to dramatically declare the ultimate goal of a majority Parti Québécois government would be to transform Quebec into an independent country.

Like members of any family, Canadians occasionally disagree and sometimes quarrel. However, all our dreams have a greater chance of succeeding, not by embittered separation  but by respectful cooperation.

Our progressive democracy has continued to evolve because of tolerance and understanding.  Thankfully Quebec voters once again demonstrated their commitment to Canada. Our fantastic country should never be taken for granted.

Lloyd Atkins,

Vernon
