Eccentricity has its limits
Re: ‘Standing up for home owner,’ letter to the editor, Cape Breton Post, Jan. 27.
It is very admirable for M. Monia MacDonald to stand up for Sylvia Dolomont and suggest she is being bullied, but one should have all the facts before writing a letter.
Dolomont, in my opinion, is no more being bullied than any other citizen in this town. The municipality is trying to help her and all the people who have to live in the vicinity of her houses.
Being eccentric is fine as long as your differences don’t affect entire neighbourhoods. When your houses and vehicles are crawling with unwanted animals and odors it can be very disturbing to a lot of people.
Her taxes may be paid but her style of living has had a tremendous effect on two neighbours. When my property becomes devalued because of the way a person next to me is living then something needs to be done.
I do hope the people of Campbell St. can get some relief. Marjorie Serafinus North Sydney
