Sheila Smith, Ocean Shores
On behalf of myself and others, I would like to thank Jim Mangleson for all his efforts in trying to get some sort of justice for the flood victims. For being our voice.
My plea to those who have the responsibilty to fix the problem is this: Imagine, if you can, the cost to a pensioner whose home has been ruined time and time again. It is a callous individual who can disregard the stress, anxiety and depression these people have endured.
Procrastination has to be the cruellest form of denial.This is really unfair treatment for people who have done no wrong. You would not like your parents or grandparents to be treated this way.
Had any of us caused the flooding we would, and rightly so, be held responsible. So why the double standard?
