To the Editor,
Re: Hotel project puts city on international radar, Aug. 12.
Yeah right. If the Nanaimo Economic Development Corporation and the political boys even believe for a moment that their radar is actually working, well, they’re all dead wrong because it’s more than likely only picking up false images of their own egos by this hyped-up wonder project which still raises a lot more questions.
The 70,000 Chinese tourists that it will draw is just the usual paint-by-numbers game, made up to generate the big wow factor. Even a Las Vegas bookie would not take bets on these obvious over-bloated odds.
Unless we pick up what is being put down, we will continue to be the complacent sheep being led around by the political wolves in shepherds’ clothing.
