If you can say no to a rickshaw business in downtown Sylvan Lake why in the hell would you feel obligated to say yes to an escort service? The mayor, some town councillors and the licensing officer advising them need brain transplants if they do not recognize the idiocy of this. It’s a moral issue and what is wrong with that? Nothing at all!
Some backbone and strong leadership is what is required here. Judging from comments made in last week’s paper, Sean McIntyre and Rick Grimson exhibited these qualities by voting against this proposal by town licensing officer Rae Anne Ornella.
Sean McIntyre has also made practical, down-to-earth comments before on a variety of important local issues. He should be encouraged for his stands and would make an excellent candidate for mayor in the next election.
I’m sure we all look forward to having an escort service added as an attraction to the downtown business area. After Christmas when the coloured lights are taken down, leave the red ones turned on.
