Letters: Don’t fly a tattered flag

Sooke resident thinks a clean flag is the only one that should fly

Small beef but it stands out.

I notice more and more as I drive around town that people, and institutions, seem content to fly our national flag until barely the grommets and halyard are left.

Hopefully I’m not alone in thinking that a clean, un-faded, un-tattered flag is the only one to fly. So, here’s thanks to Linda at Sooke Home Hardware for giving me a great discount on a new flag for EMCS. And to Pat Swinburnson, principal at Edward Milne for hoisting a crisp, vibrant new Maple Leaf to welcome the school day. It’s a subtle thing but subtly positive. Now if we can just mandate that public clocks tell the correct time.
