Enjoy yourself somewhere else — the Comox Valley is big

Dear editor,

I am curious as to what there is to rally around here about Stotan Falls.

READER STEVE SHORTRIDGE acknowledges that Stotan Falls is on 'a beautiful piece of property

Dear editor,

I am curious as to what there is to rally around here about Stotan Falls.

Yes, it is a beautiful piece of property that has some spectacular features but the reality is that it was bought and paid for by a gentleman who has every right in the world to restrict access for any reason he chooses.

It’s a very simple lesson that we all should have learned as kids. If it’s not yours, don’t go there.

To say that it has been open before so it should be now and the height of moronic statements is that it was zoned rural and they knew that when they bought it. So what.

Can I walk through your property because one day, long ago, it was a field?

It’s about basic respect for other people’s property and things and has nothing to do with what has happened in the past. If you see a sign that says “No Trespassing,” don’t trespass because you feel you have some special right to someone else’s property or be prepared to face the consequences of your actions.

Grow up and find somewhere else to hang around that you’re not breaking the law. It’s a big valley.

Steve Shortridge,

Comox Valley
