Letter: Let’s film future meetings

If so many people had such different experiences at this meeting, I would suggest that future meetings be filmed, writes Sarah Leslie.

Re: All the letters about recent community meetings at Christina Lake.

It would seem to me if so many people had such different experiences at this meeting, I would suggest that future meetings be filmed so that the meeting could speak for its self.

I myself see no problem in making public meetings more public. That way if you were unable to attend, you could watch and perhaps write in your feelings about it. The world is changing and 9-5 jobs are no longer the standard. Many people do shift work, night shifts, and for our area especially, there are also those who work away from home.

Let’s not also forget that parents are usually putting kids to bed between 7 and 8 p.m. or having family dinner; therefore, 7 p.m. meetings are not that easy to attend.

If the meetings were filmed and available online or at the RDKB office, people could review them as necessary. I really wish there was a video.
