GOOD POINT: Highway

In case you missed it in the paper, our illustrious city councillors must have run out of important things to do.

In case you missed it in the paper, our illustrious city councillors must have run out of important things to do.

They are proposing that the highway adjacent to the shoreline get a new name. They are even asking for name suggestions and will give out prizes. In a recent edition of the Mirror, an online poll shows that 75 per cent of respondents are NOT in favour of a name change.

Can you imagine all the ramifications of an address change? All your personal cheques, notifying everybody you know, subscriptions, health care facilities, entities that send out regular billing, like Hydro, Telus, Shaw…the list goes on.

And, of course, there will be some that you forget, and next thing you know, you will be charged for late payments, or you will miss receiving something that could be very important to you personally. And that is just us poor folks living here. Imagine the costs to all the businesses along the highway?

Elections Canada already have problems with our address. For some unknown reason, most of the people living on the highway are on the voters list twice, once on Highway 19A, and once on South Island Hwy. Does this mean we might be on there three times if the road name change is approved? How many received two copies of the census? These are but a few of the reasons I think we should oppose a name change.
