Bitterness unwelcome

We should welcome investors and allow them to build on the what we have here.

To the Editor,

I just want to say I am proud of your news coverage of this city.

I am new to this community and love it. But my one major gripe is the people who think that they have the right to tell everyone who might consider investing here to go somewhere else.

We should be greeting these possible investors with open arms to encourage investing in our city.

I don’t mean to allow them to destroy what is ours, but instead to build on the strength of what we have.

Many people might think I should not say the things I do but at least I have an open mind when it comes to the future of our greatest assets—our children.

I am confident they will bring about the growth we so much need in this city.

Terry Short,

Port Alberni
