'We want to be safe in our city'

Thank you to Daniel Gallant for a excellent article on our dying downtown and thank you to the Citizen for printing it.

I have written letter after letter to city council about this topic and have been ignored. The mayor phoned one time and I did get a answer to one letter that I had written about creating a vagrancy bylaw and was told it would cost to much.

People that do not live downtown or work or have businesses downtown are not affected by this problem so they turn a blind eye to it.

I would like the Citizen, while we still have a paper, to print the comments online to this article. We need to know how we are going to be paying for all the money the city is spending, like the new pool being built in the wrong place, and the NR Motors property? What did it cost to tear down a perfectly good hotel to accommodate a new pool? The structure could have been put to good use.

I hope our city council will read Mr. Gallant's article and do something about the big problem.Isn't that what we are paying you for? You have got to start listening to the taxpayers and stop listing to the people who feed off this.

We want to be safe in our city.
