Letters to the Editor

Thievery a lowly act any time of the year

To the editor:

Leonard is mentally and physically challenged. He attends Athan’s Pool twice a week for exercise.

On Monday, Dec. 5, at noon, Leonard’s gym bag was stolen. Later, it was found in a garbage can, but of course the $70 cash in his wallet was gone.

Leonard had just received $50 for Christmas from his elderly aunt in Saskatchewan, and he was looking forward to going shopping.

Leonard volunteers at the Salvation Army Food Bank, delivers lots of newspapers diligently, walks his dog faithfully and attends church regularly.

He should not have taken his wallet to the pool, however, someone was watching to take advantage of his mistake.

Do you really have to steal from him?
