More public toilets needed in Duncan

Downtown Duncan needs more public restrooms!

One small restroom on the far edge of downtown by the old railroad station is very far from being adequate. The city provides all kinds of wonderful attractions to bring thousands of visitors to our downtown: parades, the Saturday markets, outdoor music, totem poles. Downtown also attracts a lot of shoppers.

No matter how inconvenient, humans DO need toilets. It’s not our fault, it’s how nature made us!

It is not the responsibility of restaurants to provide toilets for the general public. Honestly, I do not know how mothers with children, the elderly and those with limited mobility manage in Duncan. The one small public restroom we have is blocks away from the centre of activity.

Mayor Staples and Duncan city council, it’s time you stepped up to the plate and dealt with your responsibility!
