AccoladeTo William Hastings for taking the time to write into the Aurora framing the Train Whistle issue by pointing out that anyone younger than 157 should have known about the train whistle when they bought their house. Unfortunately I have no answer to Mr Hasting’s question ” Why does the world need to change to accommodate myopic people?” and wonder why so many of them live here in Aurora.
AccoladeTo Vaughan Dues for also commenting in this weeks Auroran on the absurdity of replacing one safety measure with another and pointing out the reason behind these whiny complainers : to sleep in, not improve public safety.
AccoladeTo Peter Storms for pointing out the true safety ramifications for banning the train whistles in his letter to the Auroran. I too do not want engineers having the confusion of determining every day where they must blow their whistles because it is the law and where they must not blow their whistles because it is the law because of the complaints of a very few at the expense of the safety of thousands.
AccoladeTo CN , GO Transit and any private train engineers for the slight but noticeable increase in number and duration of train whistles. I’m not sure if it’s intentional or not but I like it. They are indeed a poignant reminder of how this nation was tied together….oh and then there’s that safety thing too.
