Lots of blame to go around

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - EDITORIAL -

As I opened the pa­per I was just floored reading the story about a visi­tor to P.E.I. (for­mer Is­lan­der) giv­ing the staff at the Souris town hall a hard time over glass on the beach.

If the staff can’t deal with it they showed have phoned the RCMP right away. But I do be­lieve the staff should re­ceive an apol­ogy ver­bally and a let­ter to each and ev­ery per­son that was there when this hap­pened.

Glass on the beaches are noth­ing new, any­where a per­son can’t con­trol the cur­rent. More people have to take it upon them selves to pick glass up if they see it.

What floored me in this ar­ti­cle is that the Mayor of Souris David MacDon­ald, needs train­ing in how to open his mouth prop­erly.

To­day we are try­ing to ed­u­cate front line staff, in­di­vid­u­als in men­tal health and be­ing ap­pro­pri­ate when deal­ing with irate in­di­vid­u­als. The RCMP then deal with what they need to do with the in­di­vid­ual.

The Mayor had no right to say what he did in the pa­per. I do be­lieve now that the mayor could be get­ting a com­plaint from this in­di­vid­ual to the council, on dis­ci­pline mea­sures. And maybe more. Nancy Ri­ley,
