Editor, The News:
Re: ‘Move if so concerned about cell tower’ (The News, April 18).
In answer Janine Booker’s comments, I have lived here for 40 years and expected to retire here. How dare the suggestion that those of us with concerns move.
It was not mentioned in the article that any plans we have seen as the Whonnock ACT show the tower almost closer to the property to the east of her and this property owner does not profit from it.
We are a community and right now we are split. How sad that one neighbour, with the help of a corporation and our government, which, by the way, professes to be there for us – the taxpayer – can do this to a community.
If Ms. Booker was approached so many times, why did she not consult with her neighbours? Instead this whole thing was left until a 30-day notice was sent to five residents of 110th Avenue. Though notification is not Ms. Booker’s responsibility, a neighbourly heads up would have been nice.
Sorry, I feel that dollar signs clouded the issue for the Bookers, which is what Telus hopes for.
