Letter: Dusty playtime in Port Moody

The Editor,

At lunch time recently, I was walking along St. Johns Street past Moody elementary school and I saw that the children were literally playing in a dust cloud.

Because there isn’t grass in the playground, but gravel, when they run, all the dust churns up and it’s really polluted air.

It can’t be good for their little lungs as they are closer to the ground and breathing deeply from the exertion of running and playing.

I think a specialist should be brought in to measure the air quality during playtime at the children’s level.

The dust bothered my eyes and breathing, and I was on the other side of St. Johns Street from the school.

Heidi Fraser-Kruck,
Port Moody
