Reeve needs to fight for bank and post office
To the Editor,
In response to Reeve Burton’s comments and opinion of Scotiabank’s closure of the branch in Wilberforce isn’t it funny how he feels like he’s been “slapped in the face.” It would appear that he doesn’t like it when he’s not throwing the punches. The reasons cited for justification of keeping the branch open in his hometown are coincidentally the same reasons that he and his members of council should be keeping the post office in Gooderham open; a decision he did have control over.
Gooderham is also mainly populated with seniors that don’t do online banking and depend on the receiving their bills and correspondence by mail. Many of them no longer drive either. Our seniors depend largely on Tracy for the information she provides as is clearly stated on the outside of the building that it’s the information centre. It would seem his concern is only for his end of town.
