Loss of trolley lamented, LDCU lauded for sprucing up downtown

Ron Dashwood commends the LDCU for supporting the Wall of Heroes mural, calls on businesses to help spruce up downtown.

Editor:

I would like to congratulate Ladysmith and District Credit Union on the fantastic mural they had painted on the lower parking lot wall! It looks great!

Now all we need is for a couple of businesses downtown to spruce up their building fronts. Downtown Ladysmith needs some life. It is starting to look dull and drab.

On another note, it will be sad to see the Trolley gone.

I have seen tourists taking pictures of it and overheard a couple of young men in a local coffee shop point at it going by and saying ‘cool, they have a trolley in this town!’

I imagine there are photos of it in different parts of the world by now, and people referring to Ladysmith as the town with the Trolley.

There were people in town concerned about the cost of running it. Buses don’t make money anywhere.
