Letters to the Editor

Driver had plenty of chance to stop

Editor: I saw the pickup slow as the family of raccoons crossed Fraser Highway. Imagine my shock when I saw one raccoon come rolling out from under the truck, while another ran for its life, right in front of my van.

I managed to miss it, but when I went back, its sister lay dead on the road. I don’t know what happened to the third one. Were you in such a hurry that you couldn’t wait for those animals to get across safely?

The road on the other side was clear. I was the only one behind you. I know you saw them. I know you could have stopped. We have seen this family of raccoons before, and now there is one less. Shame on you.

Brian Webster,

Langley
