Council should not give third crossing a second thought

Dear editor,

$30 million is outrageous to move cars. As a resident of Courtenay and citizen of the Comox Valley, I am outraged that Courtenay council gives any consideration to a third crossing.

$30 million and counting is just another subsidy for the car-addicted residents of Crown Isle and East Courtenay.

$30 million could be used to expand BC Transit service to the good burghers of East Courtenay so they could leave their cars at home.

Better still, they could use their bikes.

Use that $30 million to move people, not vehicles.  Give your heads a shake council and use your common sense to save money and the environment.  Deep-six the third crossing idea.
