Latest letter to the editor regarding the closure of Heritage Trailer Park in Summerside.

I have read with great interest, the situation happening at the trailer park, situated in water street east. To be given six months to relocate, is totally unfair and cruel. I have a friend in B.C. going through a similar situation. They have been given two years to vacate. These people are going through grief, stress and anxiety, I can just imagine the toll this is taking, living in this location in Summerside. I have not heard or seen any politician, in the news over this dreadful situation. Summerside is always promoting new business, including what a wonderful city, we have. Why would the city council, not consider opening up a trailer park, on vacant land within the boundaries of Summerside? This certainly be a great investment. I am sure the park would be full in no time.
