The pub was here first

Re: Chaos at closing time, Sept. 24 letters.

I feel compelled to write this in response to the letter to the editor moaning about neighbours of a pub having to put up with the fights, garbage, noise blah blah blah.

May I suggest you look closer at the problem; the bar in question has been there a lot longer than you. It provides a place for people to listen to music, sing and have a good time.

I’m not saying all patrons fully abide by the rules, but this is a problem all over. You can’t let a few ruin it for the majority.

And then I see the suggestion that the pub should shut permanently. That’s nice, let’s look at the damage there – people without jobs. And who knows, you might be lucky enough for the closure then have a big condo built on its location with hundreds of noisy people.

I ask you to respect that you live in a seaside community and you can’t expect a bar in this situation to always be quiet.

However, I have a solution; look directly out at sea and move there. You may have to ask the whales to be quiet though.

And yes I live in close proximity! And no, I’m not one of the mentioned clientele
