Tear it down

Stratford Gazette

Re: Groups stunned to find tracks being removed, news, Nov. 6

Thanks Mr. Dujlovic for taking the first step in cleaning up Stratford by taking out some useless pieces of old railway track.

Let’s hope there is a bit more “confusion” and your department “accidentally” pull the entire eyesore down.

I live in a house built in 1910 by a railway mechanic and no one from Heritage Stratford has yet come to give me a heritage designation.

My blood boils when I see that the powers that run our city have to notify and get permission from special interest groups to perform anything involving the city’s infrastructure and development services.

I have expressed my own opinion that the whole place be demolished many times and in several forums. My  last letter to an editor in this city resulted in dozens of calls to my residence praising me for speaking out and strongly offering support for total and complete demolition of the site.

Also supporting this action, I see in last week’s Gazette are - Reid Jones Christofferson report, Malone Givens Parson review and finally the Heritage Stratford committee themselves.

How many more opinions and reports are necessary before the council acts and stands up to the protectionists  and does  what the majority of Stratford taxpayers want.  Tear it all down.
