Pool malfunctions — again

OK, so I know about the flooding in Calgary, High River and the Siksika Nation, and yes, let me first of all tell everyone

Dear Editor:

OK, so I know about the flooding in Calgary, High River and the Siksika Nation, and yes, let me first of all tell everyone I am truly empathetic.

That having been said, I must come down to earth and deal with situations that seem totally insignificant compared to the catastrophe faced in those communities, but that in the final analysis is hitting home the most —namely the malfunction of our outdoor swimming pool.

You may think it is insignificant compared to the disaster but for many families here in Rimbey, the closure of the pool on one of the hottest days of this summer, is quite annoying at the least and begs the question about how the company to construct it was chosen in the first place.

Perhaps our MLA, rather than touring around his constituency in his newly-acquired Lexus SUV, could spend some time determining how his constituents are best served, not by flood dikes but by everyday amenities such as swimming pools and libraries

Then, after he has completed that task, he might advise the current government of the people of Alberta, how best to prevent disasters such as the one visited upon the people in southern Alberta in the future (climate change, remember, Joe)
