Barges belong in harbour

Editor:Re: “Dog ruins walk in the park,” Letters, Oct. 16.

To the writer so offended at the off-leash park: find somewhere else to stroll; there are miles and miles of dog-free trails.

Years ago when I moved here with my well-behaved Neapolitan mastiffs, bylaw was fine with off-leash in Cliff Gilker Park. Since then the parks have been overrun with entitled folk in designer sportswear complaining about everything. Recently I was told there is NOWHERE on the Sunshine Coast (including mountain areas) where a dog can be off leash. I do remember the terrible loss of a shelter in Port Coquitlam because the new subdivision folk didn’t like to hear barking. Time for the complaint culture to take a deep breath and realize there are many different needs here (and a dearth of off-leash parks).
