Re: July 30 Under the Glacier –
“Can you guess which child was at the Comox Petting Zoo last week ?”
I was absolutely appalled that the Comox Valley Record published the above-mentioned cartoon. Conditions such as ringworm, pink-eye, head lice, and even athlete’s foot are not laughing matters. They appear in schools, daycares, recreation and aquatic centres, etc., and operators spend hours and hours trying to remedy/control outbreaks. The employees at the Hands On Farm followed instructions on how to remedy the situation; however, unfortunately, ringworm reappeared.
Ridiculing the venue and negatively advertising the Hands On Farm is not considered appropriate media coverage! It is a wonderful venue for so many young (and old) visitors to Filberg Park. They deserve an apology.
