Letter: A gong show

Well, hello taxpayers of ‘Haney’ and Pitt Meadows. Now we’ve got a war going on about who should pay who.

Editor, The News:

Well, hello taxpayers of  ‘Haney’ and Pitt Meadows. Now we’ve got a war going on about who should pay who.

I have made the suggestion that we, the taxpayers of ‘Haney’ and Pitt Meadows, should amalgamate, a few times before. It’s only going to get worse as ‘Haney’ and Pitt Meadows fight for Metro Vancouver to look at us instead  our leaders

They can’t play in the same sandbox no more –  for example, Pitt Meadows says you can’t fly your plane here, ‘Haney,’  so now ‘Haney’ says, ‘Ya, OK,  you can’t swim in our pool, Pitt Meadows.’ Gong show.
