Slow down

How fabulous that the bus service is active again. It’s also wonderful that it stops in front of the new Save-On-Foods store.

How fabulous that the bus service is active again. It’s also wonderful that it stops in front of the new Save-On-Foods store. Those that are objecting to this, should maybe slow down, try and understand why the bus exists and chill.

In response about children running in front of traffic in the parking lot: parents, put your phones away, to have one hand on the grocery cart and the other hand holding the wee hand of the love of your life. Teach your kids the rules of how to understand about vehicles driving and parking and backing up in those same places you parked your vehicles. Help them to look around to be safe.

But then there also those people (10-90 years old) with the mindset, from a Monty Python movie: “I’m just a pedestrian, and I don’t care.” Relax folks and please slow down. Isn’t this why we are all here?
