City accused of bullying Community Thrift Store

Dear editor,

I don’t often write a letter to the editor, but I feel compelled to, regarding the Community Thrift Store on Cumberland Road, and the shameful harassment and bully tactics they are experiencing from the City of Courtenay.

The latest tactic is to surround their business with traffic cones, preventing the public from parking along Cumberland Road, and including blocking their access to their building. The owners of this business are kind, hard working individuals, who pay taxes to the City of Courtenay and contribute a great deal to our community. I am disgusted with the City of Courtenay’s behaviour, I wonder (if) they are hassling these business owners because they want them to close so they can acquire the property for their own use?
