The Rainbow Flag


The town mayor and council of Alberton PEI unanimously voted not to fly the Rainbow Flag at the town hall. This is the 50th anniversary of Pride Week and the majority of municipalities across PEI will fly the flag. Why Alberton refused is open to debate, but what is clear, there are vocal bigots alive and well in this little community. It is sad and reflects poorly on the citizens of this small town. Why would this flag cause such turmoil and dispute, it surely represents a group of people who have long been denied their equal and civil rights. I recall at the end of the occupation of Ireland, when the British finally granted them home rule, As the Union Jack was lowered, Michael Collins remarked seven hundred year of struggle over this piece of bunting! When will we learn to accept all peoples without this righteous judgmental and hateful attitude ? To the Alberton Mayor and council, your bigoted attitude is nothing short of appalling, shame on you.

God Bless and keep reading
