About six months ago, there was a letter in the Advocate from a gentleman who was concerned that our wonderful English language was being down-graded by the excessive use of profanity. I wish I had kept his letter; I wish I had written earlier to support his view.
I am sure that there are many people who share his, and my opinion.
I used to love movies, but I haven’t been to one in ages. How dare those movie makers give credence to gross words by using them as everyday language? I believe that the majority of Canadians use clean language and would be happy to see it restored to its original purity.
On Tuesday, Feb. 16, I will be in the main floor (fiction) of our downtown Red Deer Public Library, from 2 to 4 p.m., and from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. You will know me because I will be wearing a name tag: “Connie.”
Please join me for a short come-and-go visit if you share my concern. (We do not wish to interfere with the normal functioning of the library.) I would like to discuss with you what measures can be taken to restore our language.
