Letter writer offers some perspective

Writer sticks up for those who need to live free on the water

Re: Stop advertising free moorage (Letters, June 26)

For the sake of your health, Grace Wyatt, please refrain from singing O Canada. The words “strong and free” and “my home and native land” might make you choke.

If you enjoy repressing the less fortunate, there are many countries where the wealthy do whatever they want. Pick one.

If you worry about the loss of one man’s life, there are 20,000 children who die of starvation every day – adopt some. If you find derelict boats hard to look at, try living in a derelict hotel.

I’m stuck in one.
