Hit them in the wal­lets

The Hamilton Spectator - - OPINION -

RE: Wa­ter­fall safety

Mount Al­bion Falls has been a place for fam­i­lies and kids over many years. Also at one time they had small bar­be­cues for fam­i­lies to en­joy.

Now it’s a sideshow just like ev­ery­thing our city coun­cil puts for­ward. Let’s see … the Gore Park fi­asco in the ’80s, Tim Hor­tons Field with the on­go­ing prob­lems, and now LRT, which is a joke.

Why does this coun­cil pussy­foot around with the prob­lems at Al­bion Falls? The only so­lu­tion is to hit these peo­ple where it hurts — in the wal­let. If they be­lieve they should be al­lowed to ig­nore signs, as they prob­a­bly do when driv­ing, give them (the) max­i­mum fine. And if they fall in where they need the fire depart­ment and EMS, they should pay for the ser­vices.

Oh, they just won’t pay. Then to court they go, and maybe if they have to do a lit­tle time in jail, let’s see how they en­joy the ex­pe­ri­ence. The “I am en­ti­tled” peo­ple are get­ting to be a bit much these days.

John McShane, Hamil­ton
