Alberni utilitiy increase hits senior’s pocket book

Is there anyone else upset over such a large increase in municipal utility bills, one reader asks.

To the Editor,

Is there anyone else as upset as I am over such a large increase in utility bills?

As seniors in our own small home, I wonder how we seniors will pay the extra cost?

I understand that at the meeting of city council where the decision was made regarding the increase, one councillor suggested that such an increase would be difficult for anyone on a low income — like seniors.

Why do I get the feeling that we are second class citizens?
