It's always so pleasing to welcome the NEWEST baby of the YEAR! We're always on board to anxiously await who does so... and we're soooo happy for whomever produces the first child of the year.
Our Congratulations to the dualed couple of Mom, Ms Clifton and her partner Mr. Morrison on the birth of the newest member of our region.
But, why the reason to announce cultural authenticity in this announcement?
T Daily has often rec'd TONS of notices to not publish cultural authenticities - ie - in the RCMP reports, etc and now suddenly it's okay to announce cultural authenticity???
Is this report any different from the others? IE; "Nisga'a family bring first baby to 2012".
I don't think that it would fair well if the notice was posted:
"East Indian family brings first baby to 2012" OR "Portuguese Family or POLISH family bring first baby to 2012"
Get my drift? Just saying....
In any event...congrats to Ms Clifton and Mr Morrison on the birth of the newest baby of the Year! Cultural announcements aside - we're thrilled for you!
Hold this child dear to your heart and raise him as a productive member of Society. That's all the rest of us wish for this child. Enjoy all the gifts in the interim; while hosting the newest baby of the year! Again - ConGRATS!
**Please note how the Nisga'a lands are an semi-independent Nation. Although most would identify the majority of residents as First Nations, nothing in the article identified their race, religion or sexual preference.
In the same vein, we have previously identified Terrace/Kitimat/Hazelton/Houston etc as communities bringing the First Baby of the Year.
Also the use of the word 'authenticity' is somewhat misplaced. This is a celebratory notice not something to use to make a point.
