Letter: Councillor's column a timely reminder for all of us to listen and care for one another

Editor:

Re: Kamloops Coun. Denis Walsh’s column of Sept. 15 (‘Healthy dialogue, healthy community’):

I want to thank Walsh so much for reminding us to remain civil and open-minded.

To quote Dr. Bonnie Henry — be kind.

The loud voices of dissent over almost any stance can lure us into engaging in a polarizing position, which is not how we think most of the time. But we can become lured into a conflict like we did when we were kids with our siblings.

Walsh’s reminder for us to listen and to care for our family, friends and neighbours is timely.

Thank you.
