Douglas strikes out with budget pitch

If Catalyst leaves then what, an Alberni reader asks.

To the Editor,

Mayor Douglas’ new plan for economic success, he says, is to hit singles rather than home runs. That is to say, he favours going after small to medium sized businesses rather than the big industry of our past.

As yet, he’s failed to reach first base and with two strikes against him, the success of his new strategy appears in doubt.

He therefore may be forced to drop his new theme song, “Take Me Out to the Ball Game,” and start singing the blues, especially if Catalyst closes.
