Keep the name

Like many others I wonder what is wrong with the name of our Island Highway?

Like many others I wonder what is wrong with the name of our Island Highway? We are in tough economic times and to waste thousands of dollars to rename a stretch of highway is ridiculous.

Not only is it a waste of taxpayers’ money, but also there are other hidden economic impacts that will occur that haven’t been considered. Every business located along this stretch of highway will have to change their address on every piece of stationary, advertising material, business cards, postal meters, office stamps, websites, etc. Every resident will have to send out or contact everyone that they get mail or a bill from.

Why not put that money into something positive impact such as sports revenues for kids, improving more of the Sea Walk, or, do I dare say, save the money to defer future tax increases!

I apologize if I have offended anyone, but this is a lot larger than changing the name on a little green sign.

Dr. Chris Roper,

Campbell River
