To the editor,
Congratulations Nanaimo city council, you’ve made the list for the most hypocritical council. First you seem so concerned about our environment and say we need more green space, but when you had the perfect opportunity to purchase the Green Thumb property, you choose to accept a developer’s application instead and all for extra tax dollars.
You have gained a great deal of revenue over the last few years with all the building construction throughout the city.
The Green Thumb acreage could have been made into a beautiful park and could have been one of Nanaimo’s jewels.
I sincerely hope you all enjoy trying to drive from Woodgrove to city hall, which will take you over an hour. You are contributing to more pollution and gridlock.
L. Marr, Nanaimo
