Letter to the editor: May I suggest the “ROOM IS LOST”

‘The accounts of the meeting I have read suggests a very hostile attitude towards WFP.’

Re: “You’ve lost the room” Bood tells Western Forest Products

May I suggest the “ROOM IS LOST”

The Regional District, the associate municipal councillors and Mayors are elected to attend to matters of municipal infrastructure, sewer and water etc. not to use their offices as a platform to express their personal opinions and ideology. The accounts of the meeting I have read suggests a very hostile attitude towards Western Forest Products. Most of the issues discussed would appear to be the responsibility of the Provincial Government (Ministry of Highways and the Ministry of Forest).

Perhaps those concerns should be presented to the Province rather than the Kangaroo Court venue that is presently being pursued.

I enjoyed two terms on Port McNeill Council as Public Works Alderman and often reminded my fellow councillors that our job was to make sure sh*t goes downhill not the other way.

Bruce Jackman,

Port McNeill
