SUPPORTING MONIKA SCHAEFER’S RIGHT TO BUSK IN JASPER
Dear Mr. Baker, please reverse your decision to deny Monika Schaefer a busking license in your fine city.
And please do not take part with Mr. Kuzminski of the Legion and others in your community who are demonizing her and acting in a truely disgraceful fashion.
My Grandfather fought for the priniciples of free speech/freedom of expression (and similar principles) in WW 1, was maimed for life, and received the Military Cross for bravery during various offensives. I wish I could have known him, but he died before I was born.
My Father fought for the principles of free speech/freedom of expression (and similar principles) in WW 2, was blown out of a tank, and miraculously survived. He is 92 now and living in a Veterans Care home.
But what a shame that he has survived to see you and others in Jasper demonizing a fine woman who is exercising the very freedoms he and his father fought so gallantly for.
Mr. Baker…, I beseech you to consult with your colleagues, and to collectively do the right thing.
Thank-you for your serious consideration of this matter.
