Letter-writer against township chipping in $200,000 for Action Champlain

To The Editor,

I read with interest that over 90% of 273 people have expressed their opposition to the Colacem project. I have not chosen to be for or against this project. I do know that all taxpayers regardless of their position will be paying the $200,000 that this committee is asking the township to provide.  I am against this.

    I agree with Kenneth Duff. Taxpayers ought not be funding any Special Interest Groups. Taxpayer funds are to support municipal administration and operations. Corporate welfare victimizes non-consenting taxpayers.

    Talk about community spirit. I guess the problem is far enough from home for some members of our community that « we don’t care » attitude is justified.
    As far as taxes are concerned, I guess we would be happier to pay higher taxes for more frequent road repairs, health care costs and possible economic impacts of having such an industry reduce the attractiveness of our region and thus reduce future investments in this region. Not to mention the incredible eyesore and disfigurement of our landscape.
    Seems like a short sighted view of what both our Township and Action Champlain are fighting for.
