Here is a letter in today’s Courier, which we quote without further comment:
Sorry folks, the claim that the project doesn’t work out financially with lower height” is the usual BS from developers. What it really means is that the lower height won’t give Boffo the full profit it wants to make from this project.
This is not some benevolent offer on their part. We need a fair taxation system with corporations paying their fare share. The needed services that the Kettle provides are part of our health care system. So why isn’t the government providing it?
It’s absolutely wrong that the only way to provide these services to the most vulnerable amongst us is by allowing a private corporation to make a bundle of money.
And, to make matter worse, every cent that Boffo puts into the Kettle expansion will be tax deductible for them further denying the public purse.”
