Re: ‘Move if so concerned about cell tower’ (The News, April 18).
I am surprised by Mrs. Brooker’s wanton disregard for her neighbours concerns.
When I used to live there, before her time, mind you, it was a close-knit community, in which everyone looked out for each other and shared a common concern for the environment.
But, oh well, it’s a brave new world, with everyone looking out for themselves, I suppose.
That being said, it’s worth mentioning that for many of the residents of Whonnock, who have spent the better part of four decades living, raising families, and taking care of grandchildren, moving is the last thing on their minds, nor should they even have to contemplate the idea.
Speaking on my parents’ behalf, however, they are less concerned with whatever health issues the tower represents, although they, like Mrs. Brooker rely on a well for water; they are more concerned with living next to a massive, industrial installation that would most certainly impact on their enjoyment of their own property.
