Re: Legal camping is closer (The News, May 27).
I am not one happy camper.
Let’s not even put the word out there of ‘legal camping is closer.’
Are you nuts?
There is no public legal camping allowed, and there should never be any such acceptance of same.
What the hell is happening to our home, community, city, province, country?
If this open system is ‘allowed’, then people will live in all of our recreational, open shared areas, which we have paid for and earned to use.
Do I want to go to the park in the summer evening with my kids or grandkids with a community of homeless campers living there?
I am the one paying for this open space, right?
‘No’ is the answer, the solution, the only way it should be.
No to ‘legal camping in public parks and areas’. No further discussion.
People who need medical assistance, nursing and housing to support themselves to live healthy, need to have appropriate facilities, like Riverview supportive care, to be re-opened for their assistance.
Our society has taken a nose-dive in the care of those who cannot help themselves and we should be ashamed of ourselves.
To make it worse, we have allowed this unhealthy situation to grow and fester into a nightmare of people actually living on our streets and in our parks and public areas, which is unsafe for everyone.
This must stop.
