Mackenzie lot is the wrong spot for new tourism centre

The new tourism centre will take away a major parking lot, which our local doctors use daily. And I ask where do you people think the motorhomes, travel trailers and tourbuses (those whom aren't boycotting us) will park? Illegally on Mackenzie Avenue, because some seem to have difficulty complying with the existing signage. Or maybe right on Victoria Road? Or across the railway tracks and cause major headaches for CP Rail?

Re: New tourism centre, News, June 22

As I sit shaking my head my friends ask why…

The new tourism centre will take away a major parking lot, which our local doctors use daily. And I ask where do you people think the motorhomes, travel trailers and tourbuses (those whom aren’t boycotting us) will park? Illegally on Mackenzie Avenue, because some seem to have difficulty complying with the existing signage. Or maybe right on Victoria Road? Or across the railway tracks and cause major headaches for CP Rail?

The point being the Tourist Information bosses had two choices and they downright picked the wrong location. The lot next to the liquour store had lots of parking around there.  The shoulder of Victoria Road where motorhomes and travel trailers could park legally and also on Campbell Avenue. In my opinion, they Mackenzie Avenue lot is the worst location.

It looks like the person who makes the final desiccion has never driven anything larger than a compact.
