LETTER: Removal of crosswalks seen as ‘attack’ on seniors, disabled

Editor:

A very nice pathway was rebuilt between Martin and Foster abutting the new Foster-Martin project.

The City, in its wisdom, took out the crosswalks at both ends. Many people used these crossings, including people with walkers, or, like myself, a mobility scooter.

I did send a letter of inquiry to the engineering department and city council, neither of which thought my life or all those others was worth a reply, or even a second look at such a poor decision.

I hope many folks will see this as another dreadful attack on older and handicapped citizens, as well as those that who cannot afford to drive everywhere.

Jim Crighton, White Rock
