When you open your drapes at the Holiday Inn on Regent Street, on a beautiful sunny morning like today, you can see pink-veined rock on which are built homes and businesses. The sun makes it twinkle, creating an unreal image. A few years ago, while attending an art show, I was surprised to hear one of the visitors saying that the painter had a vivid imagination for creating pink rock. For northerners, this is very real, a unique part of the beautiful landscape in the area, pink rock, even more prominent around Manitoulin Island. Yes as Michael Ignatieff has been saying, our country’s uniqueness deserves respect and caring.
