LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Discontent City causing chaos

The chaos is unbelievable, the theft and intimidation immeasurable, says letter writer

To the editor,

Re: Marketplace leaves people behind, Letters, July 26.

I didn’t know that expecting all people to live under the same umbrella of laws made a person an Ebenezer, bad guy or unsympathetic. I think it’s a no-brainer – break law equals jail.

Another letter writer wrote a perfect letter and she should run for mayor.

The photo printed is our everyday view from our condo. And we actually see the true chaos. Our building has been broken into, gardens vandalized, the chaos is unbelievable, the theft and intimidation immeasurable. Make it end soon.

Lisa Stacy, Nanaimo
