Re. the Advocate’s Nov. 14 news story, headlined Red Deer couple feel like ‘prisoners’ as condo board refuses access ramp:
I have just read the article regarding Irene and Arnold Pipke, who reside in Rosedale Gardens condominium complex located in Red Deer.
I must say that I am shocked and concerned about the treatment they have received from the condo board regarding a wheelchair ramp.
That is no way to treat anyone, especially a senior who has worked hard all his/her life to better Canada.
As one who had to walk using a cane for more than a year, I can appreciate their problem.
A ramp located out the door they wish would not be a disgraceful sight.
It would, however, show everyone that we care enough about seniors, disabled or not. And what, pray tell, is wrong with that? This is not good PR for the Rosedale Gardens board of directors.
I am praying that they grow a conscience, use the common sense that God gave them and allow this very small concession.
Try to walk a mile in their shoes.
