My name is David Grantham and I am running for Castlegar City Council.
I personally would like to challenge the City of Trail to stand up and do what is right for the entire region and all their brothers, sisters, and friends in neighbouring communities, and to agree to the fact that we all know to be true, "We need a new Regional Hospital". I personally could care less where one gets built, it just needs to be done, not just for the sake of Castlegar, but for the sake of all in our entire region. The sooner we start acting as one, which is needed with this ever changing global economy, the sooner we start down a path as a progressive and dynamic region. Our entire region needs to change focus from one of self protectionism, to that of a region with forward thinking and new ideas, which could only help our small businesses who struggle to survive in these changing times. Either you change and adapt your way of thinking, or time passes you by.
