I am not here to write about the pros/cons of the Corfield development, but I am for it.
I felt sick after reading the Thursday, July 19 article, (re: Opposition group starting a GoFundMe group).
Already they have $25,000+ (as of July 25) toward propsed legal fees to “fight and win.”
There are people involved on both sides; this is not a game to “fight and win.”
When I lived on the mainland, a similar group was against the hydro lines getting taller. They raised thousands for legal fees.
They fought and lost.
I looked up the GoFundMe website. Their definition is “fundraising for those in need.”
One has to be careful online.
If not a fundraiser, is it more about flaunting money around?
The very rich versus the very poor using their money as power?
If people in the group, or those donating to the group, can raise $25,000 in a very short time, why not put that money to any charity of your choice?
Give back to our community.
