To the editor,
Sober second thought or senate decision, whatever the case, I do believe those involved in the new sports complex for Harbour Grace should should take a step back and rethink the whole plan.
After driving by the proposed site and all of the goings on this past few years over whether or not it should go ahead or not, something seems amiss.
Being from an area serviced largely Bay Roberts, our children are always bused or by some other means of transportation, to all kinds of sporting events or some other functions.
Our grandchildren enrolled in a swimming course that should have begun last Monday. It is now due to start Wednesday because of maintenance problems. My goodness its the middle of July,where was the planning.
What I do see is a growing population in our area, the need for more sports facilities is needed.
Any money spent on our youth in this way would only give our youth a place to grow and mature.
May be it is time to think outside the box and come together as a larger community with the needs of all our region and put something in place for the good of the whole area.
