Let’s go to work on the mine

Recently I was in Ottawa lobbying support for the New Prosperity Mine project.

Editor:

Recently I was in Ottawa lobbying support for the New Prosperity Mine project. Upon my return, I read in many publications that our group was possibly funded by outside sources.

In the same publications we were also called ignorant. I can’t believe that a newspaper or online publication would print such dribble without first fact checking.

I would like to set the record straight. Not only did each individual pay their own way, some of us used this time against our holiday time.

Also, instead of calling us ignorant, it would have been far more productive to invite us to meet and discuss options and solutions.

Our group would be more than happy to accommodate such an idea.

But no, it was far easier to throw out insults.

This is a big opportunity for our community. We should be rejoicing and parading up and down the streets celebrating an economic future and jobs.

Let’s re-open some schools, let’s keep our community together and at home.

This project is needed and we should embrace the opportunity presented to us.

Let’s go to work.
