Free parking encourages visitors to stay

Northeast councillors should take note

To the Expositor:

I took this picture this past weekend in a small town in southern Ontario called St. Jacobs.

Desjardins Letter

It encourages its visitors to stay all day, shop and dine as long as you want and park free! What a novel idea!

Perhaps our Little Current council members should take note and follow this fine example of hospitality. It would encourage visitors to come and also return instead of penalizing them with a fine for overstaying their welcome!
