Letter: Sorry, but NOTL is not a five-star town
Letter to the editor. File

Dear editor:

Further to Brian Marshall’s July 4 Arch-i-text column, “Luxury Parliament Oak hotel is pie-in-the-sky,” far beyond absolutely real parking issues, a hotel of this status competes with all five-star hotels in the world.

Why would the ultra-wealthy visit NOTL, quaint as it is, when they’re also choosing from Paris, New York, Tokyo, Tuscany, Dubai …?

The world is their oyster: why come to the land of gelato and chapeaux?

Not to ignore our lovely green spaces and charming wineries, but compared to the Loire Valley, Australia or New Zealand, we come up a wee bit short.

Niagara-on-the-Lake is a lovely place, but it’s not a five-star town.

And hey, can we please talk about why we’re building two massive hotels during a housing crisis?
