Re: Dress code required for Oakville breast prosthesis teacher? Chronicle, September 20

Content of the article

Here I am again with “it’s hard to believe” but, again, it’s hard to believe.

It’s hard to believe that an Ontario teacher would show up to school with « really, really big (big watermelon) breasts with really, really big (grape-sized) nipples sticking out of a sweater” and the principal could not or would not tell the teacher to go home, change and come back with an appropriate outfit to wear to school.

But, as hard as that is to believe, it’s even harder to believe that Ontario’s top education dog, Education Minister Stephen Lecce, couldn’t or wouldn’t do the same. For some reason, which I had no idea at all, Lecce had to send a letter to the Ontario College of Teachers « asking » the College to « consider » raising the standards for professional conduct.

So it’s a waiting situation. Until we heard from the Ontario College of Teachers, « really big fake boobs the size of a watermelon with really big grape-sized nipples sticking out of them. » ‘a sweater’ may be worn by teachers in the Province of Ontario.

Is it hard to believe? It’s really, really hard to believe.



(You can’t make this stuff up.)


We’re sick of watching these politically correct television commercials. They are neither realistic, nor effective, nor creative. How can advertisers expect to sell a product with this type of advertising? They do not reflect the real world. We have to wonder what they are actually selling. Advertisers need to recognize that they are just wasting money and that the ad itself sends the wrong message.

We still live in the real world, not in a fantasy world.

Re: Choking on the cost of GG’s meal, Sep 24

Governor General Mary Simon is following in Adrienne Clarkson’s footsteps. We shouldn’t pay for her to represent the king, the Royal Family should pay – maybe they’d keep better track of where she spends their money.

Why would she travel around the world at our expense when she’s just there to represent the monarchy? Some people on reserves do not have adequate housing or water. Once you put people in power, they completely change.



(The rest of the world lives on a budget, it seems reasonable to expect civil servants to do so as well.)

The Lowertown Community Association is pleased that TUPOC has been evicted from the old St. Brigid’s Church. This is great news, now they can live in peace with all the drug dealers, drug addicts, criminal gangs, shootings and other violent crimes that don’t seem to bother them.





Subject: Delegation too large, letter, September 20

Queen Elizabeth II has sadly died aged 96 after 70 years on the throne. May God bless her. More than 2,000 people attended the service, including 500 guests from around the world. I am sure that the delegations from some other countries were also numerous.

But the question is why are we so inclined to attack our Canadian government at this time when Queen Elizabeth II dies after 70 and at 96?

I would suggest that the writer express his displeasure at the polls like all other Canadians who have the right to vote. And maybe find out what the Queen means to Canada.



(Voicing your displeasure whenever you want is one of those freedoms you hear about all the time.)
