To the Editor,
Re: Blue Community taps turned on again by council, June 28.
City council does seem to be easily swayed by too many nebulous ideas.
What group is next to make a presentation for their special interest and have these councillors jump aboard?
After making the decision that students and others could have the healthy choice of water in vending machines instead of juice and pop, now they are taking water away.
At the Port Theatre, parks and other public venues, water can no longer be purchased.
How many other communities are there where this is a fact?
How ridiculous that people who go to theatres can no longer purchase something that is good for them to drink and that offers a way for us to help that organization?
Now we are forced to smuggle in water.
How many businesses will go down because of this decision? Are we going to ban businesses from providing large bottles of water to refill coolers as well?
I can guarantee these councillors will not ever be re-elected due to this issue, let alone any other lame-brained issues.
How about helping to make this community a better place for the hungry. There are hundreds of issues of more importance than being a ‘blue community’.
There are always going to be voices demanding to be heard. Is this council going to sway for every argument pushed at it?
Where has common sense gone?
