To the Editor,
Re: Mayor seeks support for investment trip, Aug. 18.
I can’t believe the mayor wants $11,000 for another trade mission to China. This comes a year after Nanaimo Economic Development Corporation was over there. Has anything concrete come out of that trip?
Now, the economy in China is in trouble which has caused huge problems with the Canadian stock exchange as well as others. Do we want other investors to come forward with a hotel proposal now, only to sit on the fence for the next number of years like the last fiasco?
To me, this council is flogging a dead horse. Something else needs to be done with the conference centre.
Why was it built in the first place when there is one in Victoria and also Vancouver? It would have made more sense to build a sports centre.
