Blue light missing

 To the editor: A few weeks ago, I read in The Press how there are blue lights placed at Woodville and Wales roads and also at Wales and North Drouillard roads to let people know when a train has Wales Road blocked.  The blue light is also placed at East Broadway and Wales Road. My question is, why was there not one placed at South Drouillard Road and Wales Road?

I pull an enclosed utility trailer with our son’s electric wheelchair in it to get him to his doctor appoints. I have had to turn around several times because of blocked tracks.  Don’t we who use South Drouillard Road deserve the same consideration as others to let us know if the road is blocked?

Resist the temptation

To the editor: It’s that time of year again, when the feed companies have live ducklings for sale in their stores. Those ducklings sure are cute, but they’re not meant to go in your children’s Easter baskets. They are meant to live on farms.

Animals deserve more

 To the editor: I wanted to respond to the Fresh Country Air column by Matt Reese. Animal cruelty should never be found acceptable for any reason. Forcing animals to do unnatural “tricks” is cruelty. Cruelty is anything that causes pain or suffering, physically or mentally, to a person or animal.  As a society, it is sad that many still have difficulty understanding this if it goes against their agenda.
