Dear Mr. Harper
This evening we watched a group of children in Shearwater, Denny Island, settle a dispute over portions of ice cream with a good old fashion pillow fight.
The big kids dove first and snatched up the large awkwardly shaped couch cushions. The younger kids grabbed throw pillows, aptly named for their ability to strike the opponent from across the room.
As I watched this innocent clash unfold I couldn’t help but think that that by the end of it, when the participants were either mildly injured or exhausted, the dispute would be settled.
Perhaps, Mr. Harper, we might settle our differences with a pillow fight. Do you accept?
For the coast,
Sarah and Mike
P.S. The most formidable pillow striker was clad in a NO ENBRIDGE t-shirt that read “We stand strong for our future generations”. Based on what I saw this evening, I wouldn’t test that.
