I was disappointed to see the choice of cover photo for last week's edition.

The Canmore grave yard is a special place to many Canmore residents both past and present.

I do not wish my loved ones resting place to be a backdrop for a fake ghoulish photo opportunity.

As a society, Canada now looks back with sadness at the disrespect shown to the sacred spaces of our Indigenous nations. Surely that respect must include our graveyards too.

I don't think it was done with any intentional unkindness, but a poor idea.

Michelee Schmidt,

Canmore
