Letters: Cultural centre decision a 'deep dissappointment'

Long-time resident says the city's takeover of the cultural centre is appalling.
The North Peace Cultural Centre.

 I have written to the Mayor and Councillors of the City of Fort St. John as follows:

As a long-time resident of this city, who's father was in his time an Alderman and who's mother was among those who raised a good deal of money for the renovation of the building, and who has himself supported many of the activities conducted there, I am appalled that you would make a decision to evict the North Peace Cultural Society from the Cultural Centre in a closed meeting with no explanation to the broader interested public of your reasons for finding such a drastic action necessary, and apparently no effort to engage the broader interested public in any search for alternatives.

Yours in deep disappointment,


Joseph S. Temple
