Kudos to editor for straight from the gut column

"Thank you for your straight from the gut column. Your wisdom and level head-thinking are so needed!"

(In response to editor Guy Bertrand’s ‘Parochial attitudes hurting entire region’ column that ran March 20)

If there was a way to make you ‘le gros fromage’ for Trail and all of the surrounding mini-dynasties, I’d be leading the pack.

Thank you for your straight from the gut column.  Your wisdom and level head-thinking are so needed!  If the people at the helm of their individual little boats could just see that we could be as efficient as Castlegar in our own politics, it would complete my vision of Trail as ‘the perfect place to live.’  I love everything else about my chosen city – but not this juvenile bickering and constant attempts to “put sticks in the wheels” of their “opponents.”

I’m always grateful when you say: “Enough!” and let ‘em have it!
