I write this in support of the letter by Ireen Slater in the June 20 Gazette.
To say that Mayor Nolan Crouse thinks that seniors are unwanted and not as important than any other group is simply ridiculous. What I think is meant is that we do constantly have to encourage the young to be in St. Albert so that they can take over the duties of a mayor, councillor, businessman or woman, teachers, pastors, and continue the work that we seniors have begun. After all, they are our future. And we seniors are their mentors. It is common sense.
Our mayor knows this and is present at every event in this city – truly interested in – from meetings, to art walks, to athletic events, and even to say a prayer in front of St. Albert Place at Easter. And I have found him easy to converse with.
Good on you Mayor Crouse and good on Ireen Slater for her inspiring letter. People: do not take things out of context. Ask questions.
Carol Brown, St. Albert
