You’re missing the point

This letter is being re-run as last week it contained errors in it. Lakes District News apologizes for any inconvenience it may have caused.

Editor:

Wow. I am not your enemy. I support the concept of an artisan centre for our community and I did write a letter of support for an artisan centre. So don’t call me a liar. The lack of respect for other artists comes through in your letter. Every business which shows and sells art is great for our community and the artists. That is not the issue. The issue is one business in town being subsidized over all other businesses. Whoever wishes to go into business in Burns Lake needs to find a landlord whose rental price meets their budget and with the village as a landlord, they need to stop unfairly competing with the other landlords in Burns Lake. That’s the issue.

Respectfully,

Wayne Brown
