I want to say how disgusted and appalled I was at the behaviour of some Kamloops residents who cleared out grocery shelves last week.

The selfishness is unbelievable. What about people on income assistance? There must be many families who were waiting for their money to buy food for their children, only to find shelves stripped bare by panic-buyers.

Children may have had to go to school with no fruit, milk or sandwiches because people were hoarding.

I hope those who gorged themselves at the tills feel good sitting on their mountains of bread, milk and veggies while some children may have gone without.

Shame on them.
