To the Editor,
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the Four Fathers Festival. I think it's a great idea.
I do, however, take some issue with the timing of it. I believe that it should build up to and culminate with Canada Day, not commence with it.
It seems rather anticlimactic this way, and also as a patriotic Canadian it's a bit unseemly to me for the fireworks to be on the fourth of July, Independence Day in the U.S.
All in all, though, well done.
