I totally agree with letter-writer Vivian Anderson’s point of view.

Whether this sleep-depriving chaos is caused by persons feeding the birds or by overstuffed garbage containers on our streets (Beyond Patient, Aug. 16 letters), taxpayers in White Rock are being treated poorly in too many areas of service – the exceptions being those of the recreation and culture segment and the FVRL’s public library.

We are truly very annoyed.

This entire page of ‘letters to the editor’ proves my point.

Please, no more letters about seagulls and trains.

When you move to a seaside community with a railway surrounding one side, train noise is to be expected.

Seagulls are also an expectation. Breeding season and young birds causes more than usual noise during summer months from these protected birds.

We have caused disruption to their nesting sights with human interference and then when they relocate to buildings people put up spikes and shake the eggs.

Seagulls are protected under the migratory bird act.
