Letter: I am OK with bird cannons
File photo.

Dear editor:

I am not a grape grower but I do value them as neighbours and their crops are one of the reasons we moved to NOTL some 20 years ago.

Having done the research before purchasing our first home, we were ready for the bird bangers when they were fired and rested calmly knowing that the crops were saved and that the wine would flow.

The farmers were here long before me and wine country has developed.

Meanwhile, back in Toronto and its close neighbours, the sound of indiscriminate gunfire rings with deadly results.

I’ll take the farmers any time and those that won’t can merrily finish their coffee, jump on the bus and enjoy the sound of real gunfire from whence they came.
