No joy in reader who saw letter about frogs

Dear editor,

I was horrified to read Summer Joy's letter in the Aug, 17 edition of the Record.

Dear editor,

I was horrified to read Summer Joy’s letter in the Aug, 17 edition of the Record.

Ms. Joy over the years has been a regular letter writer to the local papers, and her name has become synonymous with environmentalism and  humanism. So I was very disappointed to read her letter stereotyping the Chinese with regard to the abundance of non-indigenous frogs in the Comox Valley.

Ms. Joy probably meant to be ironic, humorous? But it smacked of underlying bigotry, and I think she should write an apology otherwise it could be construed as a hate letter.
