Fences and fine don’t make a good wel­come

RE: Wa­ter­fall safety

The Hamilton Spectator - - OPINION -

There have been many re­quests for swift and se­vere ac­tion on so called “tres­passers” of our parks and wa­ter­falls, and a few pleas of ac­com­mo­da­tion for the sight seek­ers, na­ture lovers and ad­ven­tur­ous (some would say dare­dev­ils).

I (we) have trav­elled to many parts of the world and en­joyed many man made mar­vels and many mar­vels of na­ture, in­clud­ing Vic­to­ria Falls and Iguazu Falls. These coun­tries are wel­com­ing to tourists and vis­i­tors. There are foot­paths, guides and wash­rooms, and of­ten a place to rest and have re­fresh­ments. I fail to see how we can ad­ver­tise Hamil­ton to the world as a “City of Wa­ter­falls” and pro­vide fences and fines as a wel­come. June Bar­ber, Dun­das
