    Fire bugs, need to stop them before they actually hurt or kill someone.

    I wonder if this is the same arsonist responsible for the seemingly random fires throughout the past few years.

  4. Cedar Stump says:

    Detective Inspector BURNS…..is investigating an arson ?? That is funny with the name association.

    Why doesn’t the Minister representing this constituency set up a go fund me page for rebuilding so all in the community have a way to contribute to righting this evil deed.

    Why a go fund me page? – how about the IDIOT who set the fire gets to pay for it and has to help rebuild it so everyone in the community can come by and watch him as he does it – public humiliation and everyone including the children knows it was YOU….that’s his punishment

    The playground was in a disgusting state before it burnt. The slides had holes in the plastic with sharp edges, the brackets were seriously rusted, there were previous burn holes, there were broken bottles and trash everywhere. It was taped off a few months before the fire by Parks as it was unsafe, and then just left. Don’t be thinking this was a glistening facility, it had been left to rot for years.

    Government has a good insurance policy, so there is no reason why this facility should not be replaced quickly.
