Letter of the Day

Transit hero rides wave of support

  • Print

Re: No ordinary ride, no ordinary driver (Sept. 19). What got to me was not so much what the bus driver did -- although I laud him hugely for what he did -- but how amazed everyone was at his actions.

The utter astonishment of those witnessing this "act of kindness" (giving away one's shoes on the spur of the moment) is proof of how few of us actually care about our neighbour. To see a need and respond to it should be how we are, normally.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for publishing this story, which brought tears to my eyes, as it no doubt did to countless other readers, on the front page where your readers could start their day with an incredible lesson.

You're going to have to move to the back for a while, Jean Beliveau. I have a new hero.

Bravo to the transit driver for committing the utmost selfless act that was not only noble by definition but a shining example for the rest of the citizens of Winnipeg to follow. I strongly suggest the new motto for the City of Winnipeg should be: "Hey, Winnipeg, do something!"

We all must pause and think about this wonderful idea very seriously.

I urge city councillors to grasp the potential of this novel slogan and convert it into a thing of reality, making Winnipeg one of the most enviable cities in North America to live in. This is not a far-fetched concept, but an idea worth its wordy weight in gold. Come on, people of Winnipeg, let's start a campaign to influence our city councillors to do something that can be remembered for a long, long time.

Let's create municipal history. Start tweeting, emailing, Facebooking and making phone calls to get this campaign off the ground.
