Ajax mine: And where would we put these 800 seniors?
Re: Claudette Kelly’s letter of April 17 (‘Mine not needed if we can attract just 800 seniors’):
What would Kelly like us to do — put out an ad asking for 800 lost or missing seniors for summers and winters only?
Do 800 of them swim, hike or ski regularly?
I am sure some of them do, but would it reach the 800 mark?
I don’t think so. I tried to get one grandmother in a home in Kamloops five years ago, but there was no room for her.
Where are we going to find room for 800 seniors?
I think Kelly has to sit down and give some thought to what she is saying.
If her dad, husband, brother or sister worked for the Ajax mine, would Kelly be voicing her opinion so strongly?
