IS C.H. Ainsworth (TDN May 9) having a whinge about the whingers? I can understand how you feel. I personally would like the issue to be the main focus, and that’s being thankful for the new hospital, but being intelligent enough not to build it on some of the best agricultural land in Australia. I believe we can have this without resorting to immature acts that don’t really honour and respect the issue and other people’s points of view.
The Tweed’s future is important, but that doesn’t only mean better health facilities. It also means having a community that is engaged, helpful, tolerant, respectful and thankful.
