Is it just me or have other people noticed that the Valley is feeling the poor economic climate?
Well I’d like to let Courtenay, Comox, Cumberland and the regional districts that a lot of people are suffering in this hardship. People are talking about having hard times just paying rent and buying food.
For some reason I don’t think these authorities realize this. Perhaps that’s why Courtenay is cutting down trees in Lewis Park and adding a $5-million expansion to the Lewis Centre. Do we really need the expansion now?
Jangula is in favour of supporting a taxpayer levy to rebuild the railway.
We have homeless situation that has been ongoing for years and there is no solution. Maple Pool is in desperate need of help. What about a taxpayer levy? Would the rich people vote in favour?
Why do we have three mayors and councils and a regional district to run the Comox Valley, a population of around 70,000 people?
What a waste of money. I don’t buy the argument that other communities are run that way. Time to set an example.
I think it’s time that our voted officials did the public a service and do what’s best for our community and stop spending at least until the economy recovers.
