Letter to the editor 2, Dec. 5, 2019
Madame Karleen Muhlegg would be better known for great wisdom had she offered to sell the Sandy Beach land back to the Town of Hudson (Conservation conflict in Hudson, The Journal, November 21, page 3).
Conservation begins in our backyards.
To add yet another development to that waterfront land, the jewel of the Ottawa River, is oh so not appropriate today.
The Nicanco Holdings development is just another speculator trying to profit from a gamble, and loading the dice by threatening a lawsuit. Speculators take their chances and can expect to lose in this era of dire global threats. Paid millions in taxes? Sounds like they can afford the write-off.
What value do we put on the quality of life for the people and animals who by rights should have access to an unspoiled environmentally-important park?
If Hudson lets this go through, everyone will pay for the loss of green space
