City should offer waterfall tours
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.
