LETTER: Drive-by cheer brought Pitt Meadows couple to tears

Readers heard noise and rushed out Saturday at 7 p.m. to wave their Canadian flag and take in ‘parade’

Dear Editor,

We heard the sirens and horns from the distance and ran outside.

What a spectacular showing of firemen, police, disaster response, council members, mayor, Pitt Meadows employees – and a special mention to the fellow in the little golf-cart like truck with the cutest little horn.
