Letters to the Editor 

To The Coast,

The decision to pull out of the poker game called "The Commonwelath Games Bid" was the right one.Now, what to do with all that money being tossed about like confetti? Well, may I suggest that now the money is not being spent on ONE special group of people called athletes,that it be diverted to another group with special needs called the disabled! There are programs for the disabled that cry out for funding!

Advocates for the disabled have constantly gone, hat in hand to the government for money to finance well thought out and well planned programs for their clients /charges only to be rejected out of hand. There can be no doubt that the disabled are treated far differently from others in this province.

Give the left over money to deserving groups and go home.

The games are over.

Live with it!

Respectfully,

Fred, Lorna & Laurence Bushor
