Paper’s choice of words insults visiting film crew

NANAIMO – Re: Film industry still growing, Opinion, March 21.

To the Editor,

Re: Film industry still growing, Opinion, March 21.

A very poor choice of words in this editorial.

I wonder how film crews feel when a Nanaimo newspaper refers to them as “gobbling up food at local restaurants and shacking up at hotels”?

Surely they eat, perhaps even dine, at our restaurants and probably they observe the niceties and merely stay at local hotels.
