LETTER: Langley City woman concerned about empty pharmacy shelves

People encouraged not to hoard medications so they are available to more people

Dear Editor,

I’ve noticed a lot of empty shelves in pharmacies and pharmacy sections of large supermarkets.

I would like to ask people to stop hoarding medicine and vitamin powders.

Working class people need those things, too.

Shelby Munro, Langley City
