To the editor,
After reading the Sept. 1, 2022 article, “Jeff Hammond seeking reelection as Thornhill director,” my mind was made up as to who I wouldn’t be voting for.
So much misinformation and inaccurate information was put forward by Jeff.
The 200-plus name petition was collected in three days by myself and one other person. There’s not 4,000 eligible voters in Thornhill and only 300 voted. A more accurate count would probably be one-third of 4,000 who would be eligible to vote and probably 20 per cent of voters turned out.
Not once have I heard of Jeff advocating anything for Thornhill’s identity, i.e. signage, the new weigh scales in the heart of Thornhill.
Thornhill is larger than Terrace in square kilometres by 15 per cent and was settled in 1892, 13 years prior to George Little arriving to settle what would be called Terrace in 1905.
Incorporation of Thornhill would be in part financed through the sale of valuable commercial/retail frontage on Yellowhead Hwy16. There’s 4.5 kilometres of highway frontage access roads on either side just screaming for development. This and various government grants for a sewer main down Hwy 16 is viable.
Jeff, redeem yourself and get my vote by showing you are really interested in Thornhill and advocate for the new Commercial Vehicle Safety and Enforcement weigh scale complex being built in the middle of Thornhill, four kilometres from Terrace, to be named Thornhill Commercial Vehicle Safety and Enforcement, or at least the Northwest Regional Commercial Vehicle Safety and Enforcement.
