We shouldn’t have to pay for dare­dev­ils

The Hamilton Spectator - - OPINION -

RE: Wa­ter­fall safety

We seem to have some dif­fi­culty deal­ing with the falls around Hamil­ton.

The prob­lem: 1. peo­ple who ig­nore signs and fences, erected for THEIR safety. 2. Those who must be res­cued, at the ex­pense of the city, af­ter dis­obey­ing those signs and fences.

The so­lu­tion: Fine the dare­dev­ils who ig­nore the signs. Make them re­spon­si­ble for the to­tal cost of their res­cue. Our fire­fight­ers have a dan­ger­ous job. They should not be put at risk for thrill-seek­ers. Don Hill, Hamil­ton
