LETTER: Desire for amalgamation doesn’t represent view of everyone

To my surprise, news from CBC Halifax has had news reports about a local citizens group who have a petition somewhere and a lot of names on it that want to join the county and the Town of Windsor at the hip.

Feel passionate about something you read or saw in the Journal? Concerned about a decision of council? Why not get it off your chest and write a letter to the editor.

I live in the County of Hants, have never laid eyes on this petition, have never been asked to sign one and certainly don't want to take on Windsor as part of the county.

Social media is becoming a very nasty tool where small groups and new media can cherry pick what might gain movement, or as they call it, traction, at any cost.

This issue was voted on by West Hants council — by the people elected to serve this county. The vote came back no.

Avon Region Citizens group: get over it! Better luck next time after a new election and see what the people want then.

In your points of mission on your Facebook page, nowhere does it state that your objective is to start work or build a petition to join town and county.

State what you really want and who you really are because you people certainly don't speak for me.
