Council/media are clueless

I am not sure who is more clueless here, the town council, towns people or you as a media outlet

This is in response to the “saving” of the Sportsplex.

I am not sure who is more clueless here, the town council, towns people or you as a media outlet. This town is in a financial crisis. To pretend that none of the city brass was aware that the old Catalyst mill was going after a tax reclassification is a blatant lie, it has been common knowledge for a year. While Rome was burning our former mayor was growing plants on the roof of city hall, give me a break already.

I for one am opposed to a tax increase to support any institution that can not justifiably be salvaged. All I can do is be thankful that the new arena was never built a few years back. I am having a hard time justifying staying in this town with their hide their head in the sand mentality that many have here. I and many like me now work in Alberta and bring our coin back here, but not to see it poured down the drain. The view is nice as is the climate, but it is also nice in alot of other locations of BC and the continent for that matter.

I am not sure where you expect the money to keep coming from. If you as the editor read a paper and shared with your readership the crisis that Ontario is facing and this country may be facing shortly perhaps common sense would prevail.
