Plan B?

News Apr 09, 2009 Flamborough Review

Dear Editor,

An open letter to regional decision-makers:

As a lifelong resident of Flamborough, I have for years heard heart-warming terms applied to this region: “greenbelt,” “escarpment biosphere,” “Bruce Trail” and “protected environment.”

Please, then, can someone explain how a Wal-Mart enhances our life situation?

One needs only to travel along Fennell on the Hamilton mountain to see the outcome of poor planning, with financial gain the only apparent advantage.
