Pleased to see Law’s positive letter

Dear Editor,

I was reading the Letters to the Editor in this past week’s Sylvan Lake News and was pleased to finally see a letter that voices the opinion that many of us have over the recent issues in the town.

Often citizens that are happy or content with the state of affairs will not bother to voice an opinion, so it was a great pleasure to read John Law’s letter! He really puts things into perspective and I want him to know that he has people that support him.

I would also like to suggest that some of the people who are putting so much effort into fighting the changes in the town, such as the Highway 11 & 781 intersection, consider taking that considerable effort and energy and putting it toward something worthwhile like homelessness, abused children, disabled people, or spending time with seniors!

Just imagine what good that could be done.

Theresa Andreeff,

Sylvan Lake
