    It was only a matter of time before someone was seriously hurt there. The cross walk is not the problem. There is never a police officer to be seen in Corner Brook.There is no direction going into and out of the Colemans parking lot. People drive in all directions. Colemans should of addressed that years ago. I don't even bother getting groceries their anymore.
