‘Say no to capitalism’

Dear Editor:

Regarding the latest push by a certain county councillor and a resident to open a cannabis store in Centre Wellington using the “flies into the face of capitalism” theory  not to allow one to open.

They must be trolling the gutters somewhere to get their “great response in favour” numbers.

There is absolutely no real financial benefit to be gained by Centre Wellington and if you factor in negatives – like petty crime, vandalism and begging – that have occurred around other stores we should seriously question the motive behind this latest push.

Most people have witnessed “capitalism” at work lately, as they can barely afford their mortgages and grocery costs and the last thing they need is their youth getting high on this product and possibly moving on to other drugs, which typically happens.

In this case, it’s time to say no to capitalism.
