To the editor,

Regarding "Begging unpardonable," by Mike Landry (August 2): While the "panhandling is illegal stickers" are just more of Downtown Dartmouth Business Commission executive director Tim Olive's typical heavy-handed approach to things, he deserves kudos for at least trying to discourage the practice. At the Spring Garden Business Association, Bernie Smith's approach, while perhaps more humane, has failed to do anything but attract even more panhandlers to Spring Garden Road, which is so infested with them that it is an area to be avoided. The safe streets legislation needs to be passed and enforced to rid us of panhandlers and squeegee bums.
