City West Dividend


#1

Does anyone else think it’s funny that Mayor Brain is treating the 400000 dollars from city west as a photo opportunity , like its a big deal that Citywest is giving The City money that it’s supposed too ?


#2

No, I don’t. Yes they are supposed to, but it kinda is a big deal considering they gave the City nothing last year.
I’m excited.


#3

Remember when it was supposed to be a million or more?

If, instead of buying a cable company, the city had just put the money in the bank, it would probably be much further ahead.

citywest version 3.0 give a little money to the city make it look like they are doing the city a favour, put fibre optic internet in smithers and not your home town , yes they are a good city owned corporation


#5

Oh well …I guess if I look at it this way …they do provide this city with good local jobs …


#6

That’s for sure.

But on the other hand, there are a lot of businesses that provide good local jobs, and aren’t owned by the taxpayers of a broke town.

And should the taxpayers of Prince Rupert really be the ones to provide good local jobs in Terrace, Kitimat, Hazleton, etc?


#7

Why should Mayor Brain be criticized for that when this has been the standard practice for CityWest payments up to present date.

It is a big deal that CityWest is paying the city what it owes…it could be a hell of a lot worse…we could be getting no payments (like some previous years) and CityWest could be going under and we get nothing.
