Was Nelson better before the influx?

What was Nelson 25 years to 50 years ago? A place to raise a family in a wilderness environment

What was Nelson 25 years to 50 years ago? A place to raise a family in a wilderness environment that promoted health and well being.

Now everone from Timbuktu wants to live here, but the quality of what life was offered here to all you Timbuckers has depleted and in my experience the lifestyle is in imenent danger.

From an increase of crime to dog issues, to housing crisis of all kinds to environmental and recreational dangers to challenge nature; which is by the way perfect. There are to much health and education turmoil where by all I can see is the wall of embarrment for the material world is overriding the consciouness of people (money) rather than being in “good service to others.”

We had a few role models that need to be furthered to bringing back the balance of Nelson as Nelson can be a role model even to the world for a happier planet. Then if the education were revamped to excluding college all together and make Grade 11 and 12 a university prep/entry level to a career, then the arts would expand to colleges.

But by far Canada should really cut the military budget in half to care for the people who pay taxes for the services they expect in health care and education. We need more responsible accountable leadership people.
