Letter to the editor 1, June 9, 2016
It is a constant source of amazement to me that people move to towns like Hudson and St. Lazare to bring up their children in quiet and safe environments, and then complain that they don't have the same services like public transportation systems when those same children require a ride to school or place of employment. (Public transportation can be difficult for Hudson and St. Lazare youth – and anyone without a car, Your Local Journal, June 2, page 9).
Why should all the taxpayers of these municipalities pitch in for the benefit of those who wanted to escape those amenities in the first place? There are buses available during the week. The rest of the time, parents can drive, just as they used to, in order to get kids to their activities and playgroups in the first place.
And as for the young man who lost his driver's license and is complaining about the lack of bus transportation? Don't even get me started on that issue!
