LETTER TO THE EDITOR: It will take city unity for change to happen

How much more time and money will council require to make change actually come, asks letter writer

To the editor,

Re: Give council time to make change, Letters, Nov. 29.

While we have a new council, just how much more time and how much more money will they require to make the wondrous change actually come to be in our lifetime?

It would be the miracle of miracles because we live in reality – fat chance.

If we are to overcome obstructions then we must first of all get our mindset out of the box and then become unified because after all, it’s our money.

Al Munro, Nanaimo
