Letter: Protesters need to stop before situation leads to someone getting hurt
File photo.

Dear editor:

I am quite concerned that someone will be seriously injured due to the protesters harassing the carriage horses. They have been frightening the horses and one day the horses may bolt, causing serious injuries. It has been reported that children have been in tears over these assaults. We talk of post-traumatic stress disorder; well allowing this to continue is providing innocent people trauma and it should be stopped.

Freedom from harassment is also a right and I don’t see that we are being protected! So, police, please serve these people who are inciting the public to cease and desist and protect the citizens.

This is plain and simple harassment and disturbance of the peace by violating our freedom. They are an angry group of folks whipping up discord. Please don’t be blinded by their supposed cause.

I believe the citizens of Niagara-on-the-Lake have the right and expectations to conduct their lives in an orderly manner, free from harassment.

Police, please protect us before someone is hurt.
