  • Dec 10, 2014 at 6:00AM updated at 10:31AM

Kelly Cameron puts in 12-hour days in his woodworking shop, a cavernous space in Clinton off Cultus Bay Road.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR | When I say “funicular,” my phone says “fitness killer”

  • Dec 10, 2014 at 8:00AM

Editor, Eric Levine thinks the opponents of the city’s plan to spoil the view from Cascade Avenue with a funicular are “few,” but he really has no evidence of this.

Mr. Levine further comments that some who voice opposition do not know all the facts. One fact clearly absent is how the majority of Langley residents feel about the need for such transport. Do the residents of Langley feel that some sort of funicular/tram is needed and of great benefit to the community in order to justify spending $500,000 of our Island County tax dollars? The will of the majority should be the basis on whether this kind of project is constructed and even whether our city budget and resources are being used to investigate and plan for it.
