Hey, fair’s fair here

Despite what the writer implies, the district did give notice of the proposed cell phone tower.

Dear editor:

I would like to respond to the letter critical of the District of Port Hardy in relation to the cell phone tower under construction off the Duval Forest Service Road.

The writer faults the district for failing to consult the nearby residents.

Despite what the writer implies, the district did give notice of the proposed cell phone tower.

Notice appeared in several issues of the North Island Gazette.

As someone who lives nearby, about 500-metres from the site, I responded to the notice and had the opportunity to make more than one submission on the subject.

I expressed concerns about one aspect of the proposal, the possible effect on the environment.

My submissions and concerns were considered when the district approved the proposal from Rogers.

I think it is unfair to fault the district for failing to consult the public when they in fact did do so.
