Park Royal makes wrong move

Re: Park Royal drops curtain on 50 years of chess players, April 4


So Park Royal will “reach out” to the police if the nefarious chess players won’t scram? First I thought maybe this story was an April Fool’s piece that accidental­ly ran four days late.

I have a solution: the last time I was in Park Royal, about a month ago, I sat in a fairly large space outside Best Buy filled with people looking at their devices. Since this seems to be allowed, maybe all the chess players could get iPads and play chess silently on them, eliminatin­g all traces of fun and human interactio­n.

Meanwhile, there are many places to shop in Metro Vancouver, so if Park Royal proceeds with this idiocy, I’ll give the mall a pass. Linda Bates, North Vancouver
