Thumbs down to Sudbury - D. Nicholls

As a person living in Chelmsford, many people, including myself, are sick and tired of the idea behind amalgamation into the City of Greater Sudbury.

As a person living in Chelmsford, many people, including myself, are sick and tired of the idea behind amalgamation into the City of Greater Sudbury.  The town of Rayside Balfour was smart enough to take on the casino years ago as a great business to enter into the township. It was not wanted by Sudbury at the time.

The idea of the casino being  moved to the city is ridiculous. One letter writer said that it would not affect any jobs. What about the restaurants  that get business from casino patrons and also other businesses around Chelmsford and Azilda?

I do not like that once again a resource from the surrounding communities (think of all the resources lost from Chelmsford, Azilda, Valley East, Capreol and other surrounding towns) should just be given to Sudbury. I would like to see it go the other way. Give  back Rayside, the Valley and Capreol.

My taxes have gone up around $600 since amalgamation. I think that Sudbury has gotten a casino-load of money from Chelmsford already.

Next election put it to a vote!
