“Random acts of kindness,” “Pay it forward”
. . . these are expressions we hear
often, but are not always fortunate enough to
Well, on Saturday morning, May 14th, 11
members of Orangeville Chorus, Sweet Adelines
had that experience in spades.
In a barn south of Shelburne, we had just
taken part in an early morning photo shoot
for an upcoming “Calendar Girls project” in
conjunction with Orangeville Music Theatre
and Music and Memories. We then went off
in the rain to Barb's Country Kitchen to have
brunch, warm up with a coffee and talk about
the memories we had just created.
While waiting in line at the restaurant a
pleasant gentleman struck up a conversation
with one of our members and noting that we
seemed to be having so much fun wondered
what had brought us all together that morning.
And so we told him.
We were eventually all seated and he was
on his own at a corner table. He fi nished eating
fi rst and as he was leaving, he stopped by
our table and said “Have a lovely day ladies.
I may not be able to purchase a calendar so
in honour of what you have done I have just
paid for your breakfast.”
We were so surprised, all we could do was
utter our “THANKS” . . . and he was on his
All we know about this kind man is that he
is a physician. We didn't even have a chance
to get his name. We inquired with the owners
of the restaurant but they did not know him.
All efforts since to locate or identify him have
So we are hoping that somehow this letter
will be seen by him and that can now know
how very thankful and impressed we were
with his “random act of kindness.” We have
all promised to “pay it forward”!
With the crazy world we live in . . . how
wonderful and refreshing it is to have this
kind of an experience. THANKS AGAIN from
some very grateful Sweet Adelines!

Bill C-16 termed
On behalf of the Institute for Canadian Values
and its 105,000 members and like minded
people across Canada, I wish to express
grave concern over the proposed bill C-16.
We all recognize that those who seek to
change their gender do experience higher
levels of personal diffi culties and are need
of care. To this this end we applaud anyone
who offers assistance for those in need.
However, we believe Bill C-16 will do the
Bill C-16 is so vague, it is unenforceable.
The fluid nature of gender identity is so
nebulous that people can change their gender
identity moment by moment. In that
the Bill seeks to change the Criminal Code
of Canada, people may be sent to prison for
two years over something that is ill-defined,
and indeterminable. One of the defences
included in Section 319 is if the communication
is established to be true. This is
impossible with fluid gender identity.
It is also reckless as the proposed law
will establish universal protection for any
man who wishes to access women's bathrooms
or girls' showers with momentary
gender fluidity. Every Member of Parliament
should examine their conscience
over the potential of their vote exposing
women and girls to male genitalia and even
being sexually violated, not by a “transgender”
person but by the sexual predator protected
by Bill C-16.
