The Editor,

I am terribly disappointed with Chelsea, Quebec Mayor Caryl Green’s attitude concerning citizens with handicaps. At the end of the question period during the Monday night Chelsea council meeting Sept. 13,  I tried to ask the mayor once again if a sound system could be installed.

I was promptly told question period was over. After each attempt, I was told question period was over. It was a simple question, asking if something could be done to improve the sound so that citizens with a hearing impairment, who take an interest in our community, would be able to hear and understand everything being said.

It is unfortunate that Mayor Green seems to snub the handicapped in the community.
