Letter: We voted in council to run New West, not change it

Editor:

I am … opposed to the removal of the Begbie statue and his name from the street, etc. No matter what you do, you are not going to change history.  We all must learn from the past.

Also, getting rid of the recycle depot is deplorable. For seniors like ourselves, it will be very inconvenient.

Maybe when all you young people "walk in our shoes" you will understand.

If you have driven across the city from the west end, and down through Braid subjected to the rail crossing which is quite often shunting, I can hardly think that someone thinks that will be convenient .

Please, we voted people in to run our city, not change it.

L. Stevenson, New Westminster
