Letters to the Editor 

I'm just wondering what is up with the tobacco advertising (nameless, smokeless tobacco) in this past weeks Coast. I know that advertisers pay your bills and are the reason that i get your great paper FREE every week but ...... i thought tobacco advertising was very out of fashion (i'm surprised you're even permitted to do so).

I'm not even especially anti-tobacco really, but that particular ad jumped out at me as obviously targeting a "particular demographic". Any comments?

Survey Asks

Should council use the yet-to-be-finalized Centre Plan when debating new developments?

  • No, it doesn’t exist yet and is still likely to change
  • Yes, thousands of hours of work and consultation have gone into what’s already assembled
  • Maybe, it really depends on what’s being proposed by the developer
  • I don’t know what the Centre Plan is and do not wish to participate in this poll
