Letter to the editor: The tail is trying to wag the dog

In Canada, we make decisions based on the collective good of the populace; not the individual preference as is more prevalent in the US

Time to get vaccinated.

Editor's note: Mr. Cornell writes in response to Letter to the editor: Reader shocked at 'ineptitude' of West Nipissing council's vote on vaccinations

-----

Once again the tail is trying to wag the dog.

Mr. Réjean Venne is in a small minority. As part of the large majority who chose to be vaccinated, I generally applaud the hard work our elected officials have been doing on our behalf.

In Canada, we make decisions based on the collective good of the populace; not the individual preference as is more prevalent in the US.

Mr. Venne, it is your prerogative to not get vaccinated but you should also own up to the consequences of your action. I have weighed the odds of complications from getting vaccinated vs the odds of being hospitalized or something more serious.

Shame on you for being so selfish.
