When I read Lynda Gawryluk’s letter to the editor, I was shocked and angry. She wrote about three teenage boys who had been teasing, following and scaring her sister Cora, not only while she was walking home from work but also outside a convenience store.
Cora and her husband Chris, who are Down’s Syndrome people, are dear friends of mine who are devoted to each other and don’t deserve this treatment. I met the two of them yesterday at Cora’s place of employment. Chris told me he was there to walk Cora home so “she would be alright”.
Cora was a delightful person who had an infectious smile. Sadly, the Cora I spoke to yesterday was not the Cora I know.
I have no idea who these boys are, and I don’t think I want to know them if they find torturing people like Cora fun.
If any of the readers can identify them, I suggest they do so before these bullies graduate from terrorizing a helpless woman to something even more serious.
I would hope if anyone sees things like this happening in our community they will intervene or call the RCMP.
