Merton Mayhem

Fri May 23, 2008 Miss Vicky 

Apparently at least one block of Merton was the target of vandals last night. Recently-planted gardens along the street were ripped up, almost every car was damaged in some way, and homes were a target as well. This is nasty. And apparently it's not the first time. As Miss Vicky understands it, some of the residents are feeling quite helpless and discouraged.

Surely someone on that street or in the area has a clue about who the vandals are. Miss Vicky can only hope that they have seen enough and are ready to get in touch with the police (613-236-1222, ext 7300, by the way... or Constable Tim Senack at the Wellington Community Police Centre, located in the Hintonburg Community Centre, el: 613-236-1222, ext. 5870).

Gosh, that kind of thing really gets to me. It's so senseless. It underlines why it is so important for neighbours on a street to get to know each other and band together. Our street managed to have problem renters ousted a few years back by banding together and reporting infractions consistently.

I hope they catch the people responsible.
