Homeless and needles

As I walked my dog past Foster Park Tuesday morning, I noticed the overnight camping by homeless people had started.

It’s a shame that after the city spent countless thousands this past year to completely replace the playground equipment. I now will not allow my grandchildren (seven and nine years old) to play there.

The risk to my grandchildren from contaminated needles is not one to which I will willingly expose them.

I will now drive them to the Parksville beach playground, which to my knowledge, city council has not yet fouled up for children. And to think my taxes go to pay for such nonsensical thinking by our elected officials.
