City should of­fer wa­ter­fall tours

The Hamilton Spectator - - OPINION -

RE: Wa­ter­fall safety

There has been a lot of news re­gard­ing safety and park­ing prob­lems at Hamil­ton’s wa­ter­falls. It is, I am sure, very costly to main­tain and try to pro­tect peo­ple against their own stu­pid­ity. Some­thing should be done and I sup­pose fin­ing the ones who don’t fol­low the rules is one.

I hon­estly be­lieve that the City of Hamil­ton is fail­ing to see a great op­por­tu­nity to avoid some of th­ese ac­ci­dents and make money at the same. Why has it never oc­curred to our es­teemed mayor and coun­cil­lors to use idle school buses dur­ing the sum­mer to give tours of th­ese beau­ti­ful wa­ter­falls? The driv­ers could also be the guides. I, for one would be happy to take a guided tour, ergo avoid­ing the prob­lem of park­ing, keep­ing some­one em­ployed all sum­mer and other ben­e­fits. Tours could leave, let’s say, from a mall park­ing lot. This would also ac­com­mo­date a lot more peo­ple and solve the park­ing prob­lems and a lot safer than leav­ing th­ese dare­devil who would jump fences, etc., to get a closer (and dan­ger­ous) look.
