First of all, I am sorry for the loss of Phil Gilbert’s father. BUT he keeps comparing this roundabout to Waterford and there is no similarity at all. Waterford’s roundabout is not smack dab in the middle of the busiest intersection in town! Did he not listen to the spokesman from United Refinery? Did he not listen to the father of the blind girl that needs to cross at this intersection to get groceries, etc.? Did he not listen to Paul Giannini when he spoke? Did he not listen to John Lewis when he spoke on how other places are removing roundabouts because of safety issues? Has he ever watched the number of children who cross there to go to McDonald’s? Has he really asked people what they wanted? Because I gotta say that I don’t know who Maurice Cashman talked to when he said everyone is in favor of this! Absolutely no one I spoke to wants this and they still don’t.
A lot of us are hoping for a big change in council with the upcoming election so that this fiasco can be revisited!
I sincerely hope no child is ever hit in this possible roundabout because, if I were any one of the four that pushed this thing though, I don’t know how they would be able to live with themselves.
He is right, I don’t believe anyone has died at this intersection, either. Let’s keep it that way. He may keep voting, yes, but I will continue to stand against this.
