Letter to the editor: Response to Mr. Moorhead
File photo.


My wife and I have been frequent visitors to Niagara-on-the-Lake for many years and have developed an affinity for the people and lifestyle of this town. We are retired and after a lot of contemplation decided to look for a smaller home.

This town was always on our mind as the place to enjoy our senior years. When an opportunity arose to purchase a new home in town we bought into the Windsor Development, a small enclave of town homes on Anne Street. These homes may not suit the “ideal” Mr. Moorhead has in mind for his vision of Niagara-on-the-Lake and he is entitled to his opinion.

However perhaps more important are the people who have purchased “these ugly little homes” etc, and Mr. Moorhead should have thought about that before putting so to speak “pen to paper.”

Lastly his dislike of the builder whom we do not know and have never met but have done business with his employees for the purchase of this home and if they are a reflection of Mr. Marotta and his company, we are happy to engage in retirement in Niagara-on-the-Lake.

It takes more than the size and style of a home to shape and define a town. It involves decent, honest people.
