Editor: I've been very disturbed at the articles that have been popping up about the Taboo company in Charlottetown. Interesting that this reporter is so quick to jump to conclusions about the store and people involved. The facts indicate some heart-warming stories. Like the fact that the entire company has been fighting to improve this area for years.
The wife of one of the owners, while even months pregnant with her son, took it upon herself to paint a public wall downtown to cover offensive graffiti that had been a scar on the neighborhood for months. This kind act inspired people to come out of their houses and grab a paintbrush to help with the effort. But when you give the power of publicity to the wrong people the facts get clouded with sensationalist propaganda, turning the community against the very people who are on their side.
What's the real issue here? That there's a well-managed, responsibly operated adult store in a downtown area of a city or that there is an out-of-touch woman abusing the system to focus on putting unrealistic blame and dangerous accusations on two hard working families?
