Cemetery bench decision non-issue

Posted on September 2, 2015 by Taber Times

We would like to commend the members of our town council for their courage in voting down the motion to have Taber Pro Life’s benches removed from our cemetery. It is shocking to us that the matter was even brought before town council in light of the fact that only two people have complained.

Those benches were placed there for the sake of visitors who come to remember their loved ones who have passed from this life. We all have a right to life, given to us by our creator, and we feel it is only fitting that an organization like Taber Pro-Life be able to remind us of this when we visit those whose lives are over.

In our opinion, two complaints about something that is appreciated by a much larger number of people in our community, should not even warrant consideration by our town council.
