Seeing pink

Resident disappointed with lack of pink propane coverage.

Dear editor,

I am very upset that after contacting J.R. Rardon about doing an article on the Pink Superior Propane truck and forwarding him the information it was not featured in the Gazette. This fundraising truck was brought up specifically for OrcaFest through hard work on my husband’s part and tied in with CIBC Run For The Cure, Bras For A Cause and Victor Secret’s.

It is just sad that something this different and unique (the truck was all pink) did not seem to be significant enough to make it into the local paper.

With us being such a small area you would think they would welcome new interests in the local paper. Our North Island could have raised a lot more money to go towards this fundraiser with the help of notifying the community of its purpose (so much per litre of propane pumped went towards cancer research).
