Letter: Sticker campaign may have consequences

It should suffice that the staff of any establishment is always courteous and friendly

To the editor:

Have we not learned from history, that to single out a group can have unintended and/or unwanted consequences?

It is one thing to mark a safe home as part of a neighbourhood watch program, but quite another to post rainbow stickers in downtown stores (Sticker campaign puts love over hate, Capital News, Nov. 8).

The stickers may not only invite a new clientele but the absence or refusal of such an identifying mark, may attract unwelcome attention or worse.

In my opinion, it should suffice that the staff of any establishment is always courteous and friendly, regardless of which group, if any, a customer belongs to. Such a business practice is more likely to receive good reviews and subsequently, may increase profits, rather than a penchant for members of a particular group.
