Municipality must not sink money into boathouse

To the Editor,

Re: Centre designed to establish new paddling district, May 13.

Some Nanaimoites believe there is no end to the endless amounts of tax dollars they feel entitled to for their own special interests.

I see where this new venture, the building of a boat house, may lead us to – shelling out astronomical amounts of taxpayer funding, again. We must stop the constant handouts to all who believe the public trough is theirs to endlessly feed from. The rest of us taxpayers cannot afford it.
