The News of Oct. 6/11 published a letter that I wrote pertaining to the “memorial tree.”
As I understand it, they wanted to have it placed in Mill Lake Park. Definitely it’s a wonderful idea, but it might cause a problem. Why? Because maybe in the future the relatives of other casualties of traffic accidents, fires, earthquakes, drownings, etc. may want their loved ones also remembered by something in Mill Lake Park.
I sent a copy of that letter to both the mayor and head of parks.
Now I heard from parks, but no mention of what I stated. I also received a letter Feb. 14 from mayor and council, but nothing about my concern.
The only statement was that Mill Lake Park was more suitable because it was bigger and could hold a larger crowd.
Wake up, Abbotsford. Does it take a 93-year-old to see what’s happening in our city?
