Letter to the editor: Not this cowboy


In the April 6 edition of the Daily Herald, Mayor Dionne stated that more stringent methods are needed going forward in regard to the collection of pledges from donors to civic projects, implying that delinquency is a problem.

For the record: in my 31 years in Prince Albert, our Family Foundation has donated well over $5 million to a variety of worthy projects around our great city, largely thanks to the tremendous support of our Canadian Tire store by the citizens of Prince Albert.

In every single case, the amount pledged has been paid 100 per cent in full, either on opening day or often before.
I would like it to be known that, if there is a problem, it’s not this cowboy.
