‘Harmful, disgusting’

Dear Editor:

Last week the Advertiser published a cartoon on page 11 that uses the murder of George Floyd  to push a political opinion.

This is so harmful and so disgusting.

I demand it be immediately removed from your online copy and a full apology in next week’s paper.

Also I demand a full paper dedicated to the Black Lives Matter movement, black business owners in our community, the history of Wellington County from the perspective of Black/Indigenious/Persons of Colour, and resources/info where community members can learn more about white fragility and how to end racism.

Furthermore, I demand a detailed explanation of how the Advertiser will broaden its editorial base to include a wider range of perspectives that exist within Wellington County.

Laura May,
