Appalling

Betty Batiuk

Dear editor:
I went to the recent production of “Rita Joe” at the Townshend Theatre on the Friday night.
The acting was well done and the message was clear. But I was appalled, as a Christian, about all the swearing and God and Jesus’ name being taken in vain.
As a parent and grandparent, we try to teach our children not to swear. But when they have it in the schools, it is in very poor taste.
I would not have wanted small children to hear that language.
Thanks for your space.
Signed,
Betty Batiuk
