Mr. Jesseau makes some excellent points here. People surrender heritage too easily. I also would have preferred to keep the names Herdman and Regina. Unfortunately, I don't think we will get the clock turned back now on the naming of these schools. It was very nice to see the wisdom of the north shore communities in their continuing to honour Rev. Templeton on the occasion of the redevelopment of that school system. We were not as fortunate in continuing to honour the legacies of Rev. Hollands, Canon Richards, Harriet Curtis, etc.. Sadly, there is only a small group of people who care about these things and they do not speak up. Likewise, I agree that the adjectives 'regional' and 'memorial' are redundant. At least maybe on these points someone may take note for future naming.
