Dear editor:

There seems to have been a preponderance of articles over the past year regarding the LGBTQ etc. community as some feel there is an apparent hate against them.

Some media have been staunch advocates, with regular articles and repeated references to the need to highlight the existence of the group and the incidents of hate, such as the defacing of the new rainbow crosswalk here in Niagara-on-the-Lake.

There are those among us who would consider the defacing of Queen Victoria’s statue in Winnipeg to be an act of hate. To my knowledge, no official reaction was made, nor was it rectified.

June is Pride Month, as everyone is aware.

But I find it disturbing that our fallen soldiers are given only one day in the year to be acknowledged for the ultimate service these men and women gave to the world.

However, I don’t believe they would have requested or expected it.

There is so much more going on in the country that should be written and editorialized about.

Can’t we just get on with our lives and the LGBTQ with theirs and place the emphasis on other issues that would be more inclusive and representative of the wider community?
