LETTERS: Kids pay for failed talks


Re: Full-scale strike for White Rock workers, May 13.

I don’t care what side you are  coming from but I think both the union and the City of White Rock are at fault and they are making the kids pay for it.

First of all,  the Semiahmoo Lacrosse Association – with more than 15 teams – can’t play at home. We have to go all the way to Chilliwack and play home. Who is paying for my time and gas? Now with floor hockey, everything is up in the air because of this.

Again, kids are paying for it.

We pay more property taxes than anybody in Canada, and we have to put with this!

No garbage pickup – I wonder if my fellow residents in White Rock will dump their garbage at city hall.
