Another Granite Manor resident speaks out

Again we have a lack of democracy in Nelson. People who sit in offices have no respect for and do not understand what the needs of seniors.

Re: “Granite Manor residents decry lost bus stop”

Again we have a lack of democracy in Nelson. People who sit in offices have no respect for and do not understand what the needs of seniors.

Take away an established bus stop from in front of the Granite Manor seniors apartments. It’s time someone in the transportation system gave their head a shake and stopped using computer generated information and/or some stupid bottom line approach before action is taken to limit or remove services that are needed by seniors, many of whom can no longer operate vehicles but still need the transportation services.

The buses travel right past the apartment building, so what’s the big deal in having a stop to pick up some elderly person who is a pioneer in the community? They don’t even teach this stuff in stupid school.

R.E. Johnson, Nelson
