Band 7 Letter, There is a public park
Hello Mr. Dave
My name is Tejinder Singh. I am working as a supervisor in the health care department of west Toronto. I live on the west side of the city Brampton where the Flower town park is situated.
I have heard from news sources that the local council has planned on selling this park. Being just a stone’s throw away from my house, I have seen how crucial this park is for this community. It is a go-to place for every individual staying nearby, whether it is for evening exercise or for just catching up with neighbors and friends. It also serves as our community hall, especially in the festive season. Lastly, this is the only park left in this area, and there is no other park for about 5 miles in any direction.
We all dearly love that park and do not wish to lose it. If the council would not change the plan of selling it, we all community members will file a case in court to protect this public park from any sale. We will be pleased if your newspaper would shed light on the importance of this park. And convey the community’s collective standpoint to the local council.
I will be appreciate your help.
