Tech survey not worth it in Nanaimo

You have to have a technical-based economy in the first place – which we very obviously do not have – to do a tech survey.

To the Editor,

Re: Survey looks at strength of tech sector, Oct. 1.

Well, with a few weeks to Halloween, it was no trick or treat that $18,000 of taxpayers’ money got, yet again, spirited away, this time by Nanaimo’s Economic Development Corporation and Innovation Island, all just for this so-called technical survey.

Oh wait, you have to have a technical-based economy in the first place – which we very obviously do not have – to do a tech survey.

Nanaimo Economic Development Corporation is not only yet again wasting taxpayers’ money, but also, overall, it just does not work.
