Letter to the Editor – Correctional Facility


Dear Editor,

They can never convince me that this proposed ‘prison’ is a good thing. In response to the Mayor’s response: Kemptville does not have a high crime rate at the present time, that I know of. The council just seems to want to increase their tax base and not seem to worry about the health and welfare of the community.

Bigger is not necessarily better. I have steady traffic at times past my front door now. This will not improve with a prison, big prison, just south of me.

Willem Van Dam is my hero for this week! We’re probably not going to win this, but we can at least try. Take it to Burritts Rapids. “Sex offenders and drug addicts” make me feel real warm and fuzzy. P.S. Mr. Van Dam states, they get their foot in the door and it could keep growing. “Build the prison somewhere else”.

We certainly don’t need more pressure on our local hospital either.

My thanks this week go to Willem Van Dam.

Still sizzling,
Kath Piché
