Indecision May or May not Be Our Problem!

Wow!! Yet again we send a message to the Investment world that this town is not open for business!

Have you been to Foodland lately if not take a canoe! The roof is leaking so bad that you play dodge the bucket when trying to navigate the rapids in the freezer section!

Foodland has been trying for the last five years to build a new store next to Tim Hortons only to be met with objections and red tape! What is the matter with you people!!!

A thirty thousand square foot store would create jobs, tax revenue and oh yeah variety!! The new store is being cited as the cause for reduced property values as one of the major complaints! Wow there is a thought!!

The area the proposed store is in features a bunch of old houses that have long outlived their economic life in the first place. There is no value there! Your position in that regard does more to devalue property in all of the town as you are killing new investment in the community and telling the world that you are in fact a bunch of hillbillies that doesn’t give a damn about the future of this community let alone the needs of the community! It proves that your only concern is your pocket-book as you may or may not be able to sell you worn out shack to some sucker that cannot afford anything else!!

The other issue proclaimed is traffic problems!! Oh Gee I guess you have never been outside your shack in the summer. We already have traffic problems beating down the lineup at Timmy’s every morning let alone in the summer when the citiots arrive. Have you never tried to shop at Foodland in the summer? Oh wait I bet you go to Owen Sound to shop at NoFrills to save 15 cents on a loaf of bread!!!

When you succeed in pissing away yet another opportunity for growth and investment in our community and you find that you now have to go to Owen Sound for groceries you will be whining that there is no growth here.

When you see other businesses leave town because of the NYBY attitude and there are no services available because of a declining tax base which will really reduce property value who will you blame then!!

No Job, no Airport, no grocery store, no future!!! Get a grip you bunch of Hicks!!!

BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

    In the recent Wiarton Echo news story, it was reported that: “Local resident Mark Freyer said at Tuesday’s meeting that the size of the building is “unheard of. . . this is a huge enterprise not seen anywhere else on the peninsula,” noting the 30,000 square foot proposed footprint is much larger than the current store of 7,000-8,000 square feet.”. At the Council Meeting, it was confirmed by Sobeys that the current store is 23,000 square feet, and the new store would be 5,000 to 6,000 square feet larger than the existing store. Please post this correction. Perception is everything!
