EDITOR, The Tribune.
When a law enforcement officer only knows one small part of the law we are in trouble.
Doing a final clear out of my business on Bay Street today, I brought my truck to collect the last vestiges of 75 years in business. Although the block has at least four marked “LOADING ZONES” not one was available, because as is usual nowadays, they are all used for all day parking. As I had a lot of heavy stuff to load, I double parked in front of my store.
As I expected, a burly RBPF officer came across the road to tell me that I could not “block” the road.
Responding, I asked him why he had allowed people to block all of the loading zones on that side of the street. He never answered of course, despite my continued questioning, and insisted that I should circle the block until I could find a parking space.
Disgusted, I drove off with my load and could only think that the poor sap is being paid today from the taxes being paid by the businesses of this country, but when we are all gone and Government can no longer borrow, maybe he won’t have a job anymore.
