LETTER: 'Shock signs' at Albion Falls a good start

Opinion Jun 20, 2017 by Jacquie Reid Hamilton Mountain News

Re: ’Shock signs’ possible for Albion Falls (June 15)

As a child, our family visited Albion Falls quite regularly.

Across the road (west side) was a small shop that sold ice cream. With our cones in hand, we would carefully walk back across the road to the falls side then walk down the steps until they ended. We did not go any further.

Peering from this site, we enjoyed the falls and gorge.

As an adult, we used the Bruce Trail to walk along to the bottom of the gorge. Again — we did not attempt to climb the falls!

I agree with Councillor Jackson’s idea of ‘shock’ signs now and his eventual goal of a permanent pathway with ledges.

It appears that many of today’s people know no fear and foolishly risk life and limb for a thrill that sometimes ends in death.

Measures must be made to save people from themselves.
