To the Editor,
It is a rotten shame that people at the bottom end of the pay scale have to, again, take the brunt of what is, admittedly, a necessary three-plus weeks lockdown to combat COVID-19 and it’s variants. The actions of the thoughtless few dictating policy.
Since drive-thru drinking and car-hop drinks service of an alcoholic nature would be frowned upon by the local constabulary, perhaps drive-thru and car-hop service at the local food bank could provide a stop gap, temporarily. Wages could be provided by a combination of Rotary, the District of Clearwater and donations from the public at large.
Our natural inventiveness and flexibility has the potential to get us through this crisis, as it has many times in the past.
Re-thinking the drive-thru drinking scenario, you would need a designated driver for your family bubble. So, would you rather have your 16-year-old teenager drunk or driving your family car?
The point of this whole diatribe is that we need to support all members of our community because in the end it benefits us all.
