LETTER: Moving gold pan should be low on priority list

First of all, let me say: Quesnel should be very proud of the appearance of the city


First of all, let me say: Quesnel should be very proud of the appearance of the city.

Looks clean, beautiful flowers in summer, good job on snow removal in the winter.

On the other side of the coin comes: the new recycle place is a horror in itself, a totally bad idea from what was in place previously.

Walking from the Quesnel River bridge to Carson Sub has to be very scary. Maybe a railing or some sort of barrier along the so-called sidewalk would help you feel safer from all the traffic.

As for Mr. Simpson’s comment on, quote, “knee jerk reaction to change,” that gold pan marks the gateway to the goldfields that probably helped put Quesnel on the map and as far as parking and pictures there is lots of room.

When you are driving north try and get across the highway into the rail yard.

Maybe more attention should be paid to getting another Dunrovin, so badly needed, the one we have is always full.

You want people to retire in Quesnel. Why would they when they know the care facilities are always full.

Not many pensioners can afford a private care home.

Our young couples have to go out of town for higher paid jobs due to the cost of living, as well.

So moving a gold pan to a railway station should be the last thing on your to-do list.
