Spittin’ mad 

To the editor,

Though I am a faithful reader and will remain so, it still stands that I was shocked and extremely disappointed by The Coast having chosen to run a large advertisement for a tobacco product in its pages.

I have seen mistakes similar to this made by your paper before: running advertisements that do not seem to fit with The Coast's usual support for local companies and products, and the health-conscious, active lifestyles of its readers. Such instances have always been quickly reconciled.

Though I do understand the financial aid that running ads from large and powerful companies can provide, there are other, less degrading ways to stay in the black. I hope to never see an ad for this type of product in your fine paper again.

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
