Re: City reveals concepts for walkway plan, Oct. 3.
At the time of economic restraint, especially wth this still-too-much-hitting economic recession, the City of Nanaimo still continues to show its true colours with this so-called conceptualized and overpriced – no real surprises here, folks – walkway, which will no doubt run well over the budget with all the now usual too-familiar excuses – oops, we did it again.
But on the flipside, it’s yet again the Nanaimo taxpayers who still maintain their typecast role of the compliant sheep while politicians still continue to behave like the sheep herders.
Overall, the tax dollars should not be wasted on frivolous and non-essential projects that only end up being yet another in the ever-growing long line of white elephant money-pit projects.
Money should go to support the Nanaimo Recycling Exchange because it’s not only the wise thing to do, but it does make for a greener Nanaimo.
