Keep kids off the roads and in the parks

Today we were told that it’s a great thing that parents let their kids play in the streets of Campbell River

Now I’ve heard it all.

Today we were told that it’s a great thing that parents let their kids play in the streets of Campbell River.

That is what we were told when we complained to RCMP that there is a family in town that allows their kids to take over the street with hockey as well as laying in the middle of the road doing chalk art. When we were kids we were taught by responsible adults that you don’t play in the middle of the road.

Why are we worried about putting in parks and facilities at large taxpayer costs if all we have to do is unleash our kids into the streets. This is not a dead end street I speak of either.

Common sense seems to be a thing of the past even when it comes to parents and authority figures protecting children.

Keep everyone safe and keep your kids off the road and in the parks.
