Dear editor,

You say we have rights. You’re right, we do.

So, today I’m going to drive down the left side of the highway. They do it in other countries.

This is a free country. I wouldn’t get very far, even if hundreds of others joined me.

Laws are made to protect us. The COVID-19 guidelines are there for the good of all of us. It hurts, but we will “Bounce Back” faster if we follow the rules set up by health-care experts.

Please give the health-care workers a break and follow the rules.

Mavis Wood, Abbotsford
