Stop manufacturing controversy

Editor:

I have resided in Castlegar since Sept. of 2011, and I can honestly say I have never witnessed nor heard of ‘oppression’ against any minority or ‘special interest group’ since I moved here. This rainbow sidewalk issue CREATES division by creating an issue where there is none! Indeed, one has to ask why create a problem where there is no conflict..? This is divisive in nature. This newspaper and town council are doing the people here no service at all by trying to create a social problem where one doesn’t exist.
