LETTER: Langley writer agrees anti-mask singer should be fired

Taking part in an anti-mask protest sends wrong message

Dear Editor,

Get off your high horse [LETTER: Langley letter writer concerned about singer firing over anti-COVID protest participation, langleyadvancetimes.com, Dec. 10]

People lose jobs all the time for conduct. Mark Donnelly is not going to starve from missing his singing gig for half of a hockey season. It was hardly ending his livelihood.

Do you know what the Canucks do for the community? For sick kids? For Canuck Place?

Do you not see the bigger picture of supporting a facility for sick and dying children and how that might conflict with letting an anti-masker represent your club at anthem time?

Do the Canucks not belong in the same free society to choose?

So sick of this…

Michele Lavery, Willoughby
