Why don’t you ask the children what they think about the bike park taken away from them and ask the taxpayers who paid for it. You give, then you take away — shame on you.

My husband and I walk around Lafarge Lake and, in the summer, there are a lot of children on their bikes there having a great time. Maybe you should check for yourself when the kids are not in school on nice days.

At the time it was built, council thought it was a good idea. What happened?

You are just putting more children out on the street. They can’t al afford baseball and or hockey, which is outrageously overpriced. We know because our grandson played both sports for about 10 years and it cost his parents a fortune.

Mayor and council, please rethink this ridiculous idea so we can save some children from the streets. 

Jean Wickens, Coquitlam
