Letter: A city bylaws cock-up in Brock

Editor:

There was a rooster in Brocklehurst until an alert cyclist heard its salute to the morning sunshine and called city bylaws officers, who were able to track down the culprit and make sure it was sent to a more tolerant community up Highway 5.

We were the neighbours who watched the little rooster grow up and were happy to hear his morning and afternoon calls.

We wonder how anyone in a city of 90,000-plus people could object to a single rooster, but there is such a person.

It is unfortunate that there is so little tolerance for something so pleasing as a rooster celebrating the mornings.

I wonder what is next on the hit list: A banjo plucker? A dog barking? A crow or raven calling out a warning?

We should have more tolerance with nature, rather than trying to change things that please many others.

We watched the bylaws officer as he sat in his truck on Crestline Street, motor idling as he waited to hear the rooster and catch the offender.

This is such a waste of taxpayer dollars .
