To the editor:
I think it’s unfortunate to see the level of confusion out there, especially on social media, regarding the proposed South Cariboo Rec Centre (SCRC) expansion.
People are falsely equating this proposal as an either-or proposition between the expansion and a new pool.
Yes, I agree it would be great to have a new pool (and a lot of other things) in this town. But as far as I know, there is no plan for a pool.
Primarily, because operating costs are way too high, something that would burden our tax base year after year.
This is unfortunate but it’s a reality.
The SCRC expansion has absolutely nothing to do with a pool. There is no pool coming. If people lose sight of this or keep confusing the actual issue at hand I think we could be in trouble of missing out on a great opportunity to build something good in this community.
