LETTERS: Priorities vary end to end

Editor: Isn’t it funny how safety is the concern for people in the south of this wonderful city?


Isn’t it funny how safety is the concern for people in the south of this wonderful city of ours?

Safety of the neighbourhood children is of prime concern in the Crescent Park area (Liquor store ‘not right fit’, June 28), but in the North Surrey neighbourhood that borders on Hawthorne Rotary Park (Surrey defended against Suzuki criticism, Aug. 30), no such concerns are being entertained by our sitting council.

So it is not alright to cause a dangerous situation in an affluent neighbourhood, but children in a more middle-class area are expendable?

Wake up and smell the coffee. A road is a road is a road and as such will present dangers.

If it isn’t good for one neighbourhood, what makes it absolutely fabulous for another?
