Letter: Position indefensible, but time to be neighbours

It’s difficult to logically defend something that’s illegal, but to descend into personal attacks and innuendo is unconscionable.

How unfortunate Doug and Sue Pekrul have chosen not to defend their position with logical arguments. Granted, it’s difficult to logically defend something that’s illegal, but to descend into personal attacks and innuendo is unconscionable. Really! They should be bigger than that.

The offending structures and personal items, even though tolerated for many years, were illegal when they were placed on the beach. They were still illegal when our parks department removed them. They are gone and our public park is better for it.

We’re all neighbours, so lets get over it. Our community is moving forward not backward.
