Make the call

If only a local resident had taken it upon himself to make a phone call, the Excalibur tower break and subsequent negative publicity might have been avoided.

I had CTV Newsnet on when I heard about the tower break. They had a phone conversation with a person who lived in Stoney Creek, which the gondola passes over. This person said he started to hear strange sounds at about 9 a.m. Why would he not report it, and the lift company could have at least had some warning and possibly taken the necessary steps to discover the source of this strange sound?

To anybody in the future, although you may not want to appear foolish and be an alarmist, please make the necessary call if something unusual suddenly appears.

Canada’s second language

I am a Brit staying with my daughter and Canadian son in law in Pemberton. I often say to Ian, we are two nations separated by the same language.

Your article two weeks ago headed, "Wind causes power OUTAGES" illustrates this perfectly. What happened to power cuts? Why do Canadians, like their American neighbours, have to invent a new word for every situation? What is wrong with the Queen’s English?
