Time to take action against vandalism

Eckville elementary and high schools are vandalized at least once a year, each.

Dear Editor,

Eckville elementary and high schools are vandalized at least once a year, each. Enough already. A camera system installed is an easy fix and not that hard to install with a little know-how.

Each school having cameras is only the right thing to do. Wildlife is abundant in the area, and there is no fence around the schools. Having eight to 12 cameras per school I’m sure would suffice, and should not cost thousands of dollars. Even better, have the students set up a fundraiser, so they too are pitching in to save the schools.

Rob Lanciault,

Sylvan Lake (former Eckville resident)
