Writer dismayed at vaccination requirement for Tims Camps

Segregation is not the answer

To the Expositor:

Tim Hortons Little Current has for the most part been a good neighbour. They provide a service that is clearly valued in the community. They create employment for many of our community members. Tim Hortons gives back to the community by donations to local organizations. Tim Hortons is for the most part a good neighbour, however, Tim Hortons has instituted a policy of discrimination against unvaccinated children.

Unvaccinated children aren’t welcome at Tims Camps.

Tim Hortons is happy to collect money on Camp Day. I’m sure vaccinated and unvaccinated persons generously contribute to what appears to be a noble cause. How would these individuals feel if they were made aware of the discrimination against unvaccinated children?

For the last seven months I have reached out to Tim Hortons at every level I can think of to register my sadness with this discriminatory policy.  It would appear that Tim Hortons will continue this policy of discrimination into their next camp season.

It is my hope that Tim Hortons will do the right thing.  Segregation is not the answer. In closing, I will refer to the final words of Martin Luther King Jr.  

“And we’ve come by here to ask you to make the first item on your agenda–fair treatment, where God’s children are concerned. Now, if you are not prepared to do that, we do have an agenda that we must follow. And our agenda calls for withdrawing economic support from you.”

Sincerely,
Zak Nicholls
