PETERS – For the future of Canada, we must overcome our fear of change

A FEW WEEKS AGO, our newsroom took a phone call from a gentleman who was hopping mad.

The object of his ire? The Real Canadian Superstore.

The man was complaining that Superstore had changed its layout, and was dead-set on convincing a reporter to do a story.

Never mind there may have been perfectly rational and understandable reasons for the changes; things were different in his grocery store and that’s bad.

  1. Change means going against the grain, ruffling feathers, dislodging ingrained beliefs and power structures. Change means getting out of the comfort zone. A shrewd and erudite group could do it but our fleeting and superficial society is definitely incapable of such feat, IMHO.
