Letter: Let’s have a PAC that fits our needs and budget


We may not need a vote on the proposed performing-arts centre, but we need a say.

True, we may not need a referendum on the matter. The other option is a counter-petition.

City council could say it is going forward with building a PAC unless enough people signed a petition against it.

This was the process that played out in 2008, when a counter petition killed council’s plan to build a parkade in the Lorne Street parking lot at Riverside Park.

Either way, the city must allow residents who will fund this project a say in the matter.

It is the law.

I support the idea for this project, but we need the details worked out. We also need a sound business plan so we aren’t on the hook for a potentially big mistake we have to live with and pay for in subsequent years.

Let’s do it right and get a PAC that fits our needs and our budget.
