Don’t ban another safety feature

Many years ago Fernie’s City fathers approved development.

Many years ago Fernie’s City fathers approved development, including a swimming pool east of the train tracks without providing an under or over pass to facilitate emergencies.

Now Fernie City fathers are considering banning train whistles at all town crossings even though only one has safety gates!

Is council aware of two pedestrian deaths which have recently occurred at train crossings? Are they now going to eliminate another safety feature at the train crossings?
