Some Common Sense

Posted on Fri, May 28, 2010 at 11:45 AM

As I read my copy of the morning paper, I am very sorry to hear of another person drowning in Nova Scotia... BUT WANTING TO FENCE OFF THE DEEP END OF THE SWIMMING HOLE IS FUCKED UP !

Its time for common sense to be brought back to the forefront of what is partly wrong in society! The deep end was marked by a rope. The deceased, who was not a good swimmer decided to go beyond the marker. That is a choice people, if he'd have drowned & there was a fence, then what? Fill the waterhole in? Build a roof over it?

Should the Government go around Nova Scotia & fill all lakes, streams, rivers, pools ponds etc to a 3 or 4 foot depth ? What will we do about the ocean? Put a huge wall around the Province at the 3ft-4 ft level? What about the tide?

Maybe, just maybe, we could 'use a bit' of common sense, & look at the fact a person who wasn't a strong swimmer, shouldn't have been out there in the first place. I am very sorry a young man has died, but putting up a fence in one spot doesn't make any sense. Learning to swim, IMO, does. —More
