No Respect

A letter to the editor about the bridge to bridge project.

First of all, I would like to thank John Jackson for being the only councillor who listened to the community.

It was probably tough having to go against the other councillors and mayor, but I know the 746 people do appreciate it. Unfortunately, it’s pretty sad when our community works their butts off to send a message to the council and we get told our opinion pretty much doesn’t matter.

For the councillors who feel threatened by the community’s message, if you can’t take the heat get out of the kitchen.

I guess we will all have to rally together again and fight harder, because I know I don’t want to be paying for this for the next 30 years, as I would like to stay in my home town and not be priced out.

I wish more people my age would have come out to the meeting about the Bridge to Bridge project to witness how little respect the councillors have for our opinions.

It really shows that we all really need to be more involved so we know what they are up to, and what they are wasting OUR money on.
