Public toilets needed
Recently an article entitled “More Public Toilets Would Promise Relief ” reminded me of the times I have witnessed the need for toilets at Blockhouse Island in Brockville.
This summer there were several bus loads of children from Ottawa visiting the Brockville Railway Tunnel tunnel and other attractions in that area. Many were asking to go to the bathroom and one little lady had an obvious problem.
Similarly, on that day, about 250 bike riders arrived in our fair city for the ‘Ride for Life.’
It was very hot and these riders were also looking for washrooms. After sending one lady to the visitor information office to use their washroom, she came back unrelieved.
The city must make portable toilets available at tourist attractions if we wish this city to grow and attract tourists to what is a beautiful area. We cannot expect one snack bar to supply the only toilet facilities. Chris Bremner Brockville
