LETTERS: No harm in trial run for dogs on promenade

Editor:

I am a resident of White Rock, and I don’t own a dog, but I honestly don’t know what is wrong with permitting people to walk their dogs along the promenade — on a trial basis, in the off season.

White Rock dog owners, with very few exceptions, take care of their dog’s poop.

Their leashed dogs are under control. I encounter people walking their dogs on White Rock’s streets and there is never any problem.

I don’t see what’s so different about the promenade, except that it’s an even nicer place to walk.

Let’s relax and give it a try.

And the folks from Surrey who object to White Rock’s experiment have lots of space in their own very large municipality where they can go for walks, with or without dogs.
