Letter: Commentary about derogatory ‘Toronto people’ term was spot on

Dear editor:

Thank you to Beth MacDonald for speaking out about the attitude of some native NOTLers (“NOTLers need to stop with derogatory ‘Toronto people’ criticism,” Letter, June 9).

We newcomers have been accused of everything from putting up housing and rental prices to drive-by shootings.

We came here because we love it.

I have been here seven years and, like many people, volunteer my time and talents with a few organizations.

My tax dollars go toward the town and my money is spent locally supporting local businesses.

Thankfully there are many locals who welcome us and don’t have that “Toronto people” attitude.

By the way, I’m not a “Toronto people” – I moved here from Mississauga.
