Hutchins posing in 10 per cent shift picture hypocritical

Reader thinks town policy does not match up with Mayor's support of 10 per cent shift

Re:  Shift 10 per cent article in the Dec. 13 Ladysmith Chronicle

I find it very hypocritical of Mayor Rob Hutchins posing with the Downtown Business Association and Chamber of Commerce and suggesting that the citizens of Ladysmith shift 10 per cent of their spending to the local merchants, when it is the Town of Ladysmith’s policy that if you can buy things that are five per cent less out of town, to do so.
