Waterbomber stupidity puts lives in danger

Those who depend upon the waterbomber for protection were temporarily left defenceless after the craft was vandalized last weekend.

To the Editor,

Re: Waterbomber vandalized; Coulson offers $5,000 reward, www.albernivalleynews.com.

The people who damaged the Hawaii Mars not only vandalized an irreplaceable piece of aviation history, they also put the lives of others at risk.

Those who depend upon the waterbomber to protect their property and their lives, were temporarily left defenceless.

Port Alberni is a small town, therefore word will quickly spread as to who did the damage. The culprits are obviously not smart enough to refrain from bragging about their exploits, so someone will know what they did and will report them to the police.

They will be caught and they will pay for their stupidity.

George Clarke,
