To the Editor,

I fully agree with Susanna Fuller's comments in the Oct 26th edition of the Coast. With the introduction of Sunday Shopping, we have indeed lost something special in this province and we should take a moment to mourn.

Not only have we lost the many quiet luxuries once enjoyed on Sundays, it seems we have also lost our democratic rights. In 2004 I voted "no" to Sunday Shopping along with the majority of Nova Scotians. That vote was recently overturned by the courts. How can this happen? I believe that all Nova Scotians should be concerned about this, even if they voted "yes" in the plebiscite. The democratic process has been ignored and this must not be allowed to happen!

An Anti-Sunday Shopping Rally is scheduled for one p.m. at the Grand Parade on Sunday, November 5th. If you are as concerned about this issue as I am, you should attend. I'll be there!
