Whilst the locomotive train was traveling through my personal and private District of Maple Ridge this morning at approximately 6:55, I was awoken quite abruptly by the sound of the train whistle.
I would like to appear before the Parks and Leisure Services Commission with a handful of my neighbours as a delegation to present an audio recording of the train whistle being blown before the hours noted in the Maple Ridge Noise By-Law.
I will be asking the commission to vote on dismantling the train track, becauseâ€¦ and wait for thisâ€¦ it is placing an unreasonable burden on me.
I have also started to lay dangerous objects across the train tracks to scare anyone who should dare use the train tracks in my town. For this, I am sure, I will be rewarded by rushing a vote through without any consultation with the train companies.
I ask the commissioners, does this case scenario make any more sense than the compelling video footage they voted on to dismantle Volker Dog Park?
Where was the commissionâ€™s rationale during that process?
My guess it was dismantled.
What should we dismantle next? The voice boxes of children?
