Taking trail builders to task

Resident not warming up to pathway project in Connors Road area


It really is unfortunate that the City of Castlegar and its representatives seem to feel that to misinform the public is acceptable.

The Connors Road Pathway project has turned into something that it was not supposed to be and what it has become.

The City of Castlegar and its representatives would like us to believe that if we wait until it is finished it will look beautiful.  It will be a welcome addition to the neighborhood and the community at large.

One thing that I learned from working throughout Canada was a very apt expression. “You can dress a pig in as many clothes as you want.  But, a pig is still a pig!”

I’m not sure whether we, the citizens of Castlegar, were misinformed or misled by the City of Castlegar or its representatives regarding the Connors Road Pathway.

Whichever it was, those actions were not acceptable.

John Shirley,

Connors Road
