Letter: Vancouver protesters should target car dealerships not bridges

Re: “Climate action protesters promise more disruptions,” Oct. 10.

I have a suggestion for the climate activists who closed down the Burrard Bridge recently.

Instead of closing bridges and inconveniencing all the people who need to get to work on time or go home, why don't you set up your demonstrations at car dealerships?

After all, they are the ones who are trying to sell all those new cars on commercials in the media. More cars to foul up the atmosphere with more greenhouse gases, right?

So why don't you "come on down" to those places and give the buying customers some thought about what they are doing, instead of keeping others from going about on their rightful way?

Roland Derksen,
