Having criticized the Christmas “spirit” of the city in the past, I just wanted to say thanks to the mayor and city council for the further addition of lights in the downtown area.
The big tree looks 100 per cent better and the lights along the Alberni Highway through town are outstanding. Adding a few strings per year is a really great idea and, with a little incentive, maybe even encourage the business owners to join in at some point in the future.
At this time of year “lighting up the streets” can’t help but put a smile on a person’s face and along with that, who knows — increased shopping is definitely a possibility.
Anyway, thanks again to the city… keep up the good work. Looking forward to next year’s addition.
