Nativity ban: City staff should practice what they preach

Will city staff now work on Christmas? letter writer asks

To the editor,

“City of Terrace bans nativity scene from City Hall roof” read the headline in the Terrace Standard, and in the article it states the administration is referencing a 2015 Supreme Court of Canada decision, about prayer in public meetings. Yes a nativity scene is considered a religious symbol, but what will the City of Terrace do, cancel Christmas holidays for city staff, since it is a religious holiday and while we are at it, will they work through Easter as well, also a religious holiday?
