Editorial: An important month

June is an important month — and not just because summer (hopefully!) arrives.

June is also Indigenous Month in Canada, Pride Month around the globe and it marks the anniversary of D-Day, when many young Canadians gave their lives to defend our freedoms.

The Lake Report encourages our readers to spend some time learning about the land we live on and spreading joy to the people in our lives who have had the courage to come out as gay, lesbian, bisexual, trans +.

As well, we should all stop by the Legion for fish and chips or a cold bevy and to pay our respects to those who fought and died for us.

Without them, we might not have Pride parades. We might not be a modern country that recognizes the contributions of Indigenous peoples before us, on whose very land we nurture our food and wine.

The Lake Report encourages readers to head to Page 14 and see some of the local businesses that supported our commemoration of D-Day, with text kindly submitted by outgoing Legion president Al Howse.

A big kudos to Al for years of service to the Niagara-on-the-Lake community and well beyond.

We have a wonderful, giving community. The Lake Report wants to do its part, so we are donating a portion of the proceeds from the D-Day remembrance page to the Legion.
