Letters: Homeless as a hockey game

Once again we have slapped the puck in the net of the Caring Place for the issue of homelessness.

Editor, The News:

Once again we have slapped the puck in the net of the Caring Place for the issue of homelessness.

The Salvation Army diverts the attention like a good goalie.

The fans (Maple Ridge taxpayers) know their team sucks and has for years, but the Caring Place doesn’t care about the taxpayers and the mess it has created.

It brings in all its homeless warriors from other communities, believing all God’s children can play the game in our little hockey town, and just like the pup hockey league, It doesn’t keep score.

The homeless warriors throw their weight around, steal the shirts off others and run our town into the ground.

When does the referee (Maple Ridge council ) dish out a penalty? Can’t councillors hear the fans screaming?

No, it’s a one way game and they turn a blind eye for fear of rebellion.

As you can see, the Caring Place is playing a very good game and getting much better at stick handling through the fans, the ref and shooting the puck right down our throats.

And guess what? We’re going to take it  like the great Canadian kids we are and cheer them on, all while they turn this place into their hockey town.

I hate to make it out like a game, but it sure seems like one.
