Letter: Volker Park process was dismantled

Dear Editor,

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, because… and wait for this… 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 commission’s rationale during that process?

My guess it was dismantled.

What should we dismantle next? The voice boxes of children?

P. Justus, Maple Ridge
