This is to add my voice to Cliff Boldt’s letter to your paper, Aug. 26 (Council should not give third crossing a second thought).
Building another bridge to cross the Courtenay River is one of the stupidest ideas that’s been brought up for discussion. I too am outraged that Courtenay council would even consider such a proposition.
There are many items more deserving if they have that much money to burn. Please don’t add more reasons for us to think the worst of you, Mayor and councillors. If the Condensory bridge, 5th Street bridge, 17th St. bridge aren’t good enough for you to make the commute, stay home.
I already have serious doubts about the agenda of the mayor and many councillors. What is the point to another crossing? There are no economic or environmental reasons so don’t waste your time considering it. There are more important issues.
