To the Editor,
Re: Council shows little backbone, Opinion, Nov. 17.
I wish to thank the News Bulletin for its excellent editorial regarding the city’s intention to destroy the Colliery dams and drain the small lakes.
Thanks as well to the other opinions written by concerned residents.
It will be difficult to overcome the fear generated by the city’s unprecedented “the sky is falling” visits to 400 households in the area, however, let us hope that the city officials take notice.
The forestry industries own most of the recreational land around Nanaimo, and with the population explosion, special parks like Colliery become absolutely vital for the residents, and should be preserved.
