Watch out, your town may be next

RE: Leash-free parks

We woke up one morn­ing and found there’s a new law — our chil­dren can no longer run loose in the park on our road. We will have to keep hold of them all the time. “Lo­cal res­i­dents have com­plained.”

We’re all re­tired around here, we’re empty-nesters. So our “chil­dren” are our dogs. Sure, they’re a bit loud, un­tidy and messy, but they’re en­er­getic and good com­pany — just like chil­dren. They love to run around with each other, and we love them dearly.

Our Lit­tle­john park was the last off-leash park in Dun­das (the near­est is Rock Chapel). It’s been 30 years. A big loss. Watch out — your town may be next. Tony Carr, Dun­das
