I have to say that I was truly disappointed in the tone of some of the letters to the editor this past week.
One writer criticized town council and Lord Mayor Betty Disero for a lack of communication with business owners when in fact the town has been putting out daily public news releases and communiques as well as having behind-the-scenes discussions with the Chamber of Commerce and businesses.
Another writer chastised town bylaw officers based on what they read on social media. And another writer raised the issue of “overtourism” at a time when tourism has been shut down.
I think in these extraordinary times, we, as residents of Niagara-on-the-Lake, need to get behind our civic leaders and town staff and support them.
It is easy to sit on the sidelines and criticize. Theirs is a very tough job. I know I support them 100 per cent.
