Letter: Show respect for our cenotaph
Letter

Dear editor:

One afternoon last week two male individuals were throwing a tennis ball on Queen Street.

One proceeded to throw it at the cenotaph, hitting it just below the clock face.

This dangerous, disrespectful and thoughtless behaviour is intolerable. These individuals should know better and be ashamed of themselves.

Their actions were also recorded on camera and the chair of the town's cenotaph committee was notified.

As we all know, cenotaphs are memorials to our fallen heroes and, in NOTL's case, it is located in a street where Canadians fought for our country.

Shame on you.

Stan Harrington
