Unhappy by need to pay

I am very unhappy about the changes to reading the paper online.

Dear editor:

I am very unhappy about the changes to reading the paper online.

I have been reading this for seven years since I moved out to Alberta.

My family still lives in Port Hardy and I visit on a regular basis.

What saddens me the most is the North Island needs some serious exposure and by doing this you are cutting off the rest of the population from seeing what’s going on.

I think the decision to do this should be seriously re-thought if you expect anyone to pay attention to what is going on up there.

I also refuse to pay money for a subscription as almost every other commuity paper online is free!

In regards to the money issues, well, there must be some other way to do this,

I feel as though you will probably lose more money by doing this in the long run, as well as some very loyal readers and/or customers that will no longer pay attention.
