Subject: Safety First!
In the interest of safety, we ask local government officials to place signs on both sides of the Combermere bridge that say something like swimmers only, and for the other side of the bridge, it would say boats only.
People have been very scared or injured by speeding boats on the bridge’s swimming side in the past. This situation is concerning. The people with the proper authority are being asked to help with the safety of this situation.
That being our good Mayor Kim Love and her councilors, our good MPP John Yakabuski, the OPP and local news. Indeed, with all of them, they will make it safer for people to swim under the bridge without getting hit by a speeding boat. Hopefully, they do not take the easy way out and just put up no swimming signs for all that swim under the bridge. That would be hurtful to our tourist trade and our community.
The worst-case scenario would be that this warning is ignored, and someone gets hurt.
