Let’s keep the Canopies

Kapi-Mana News - - OPINION -

I’m for keep­ing the Canopies. The crit­ics say they are an eye­sore and that people get wet when stand­ing at the sides when it rains.

Why don’t they use their brains – if it rains stand un­der the Canopies? That‘s what they are there for – shel­ter from the rain and some­times the sun.

Many people have a disability, as I do. I en­joy walk­ing with my kids un­der the Canopies when I’m shop­ping around that area.

Some­times when the kids do their mar­ket days they set their stalls un­der the Canopies to sell their stuff. That is an­other im­por­tant as­pect.

Maybe the city coun­cil should paint the Canopies ev­ery two or three years.
