EDITOR:

The election campaign is now underway, the Charlottetown election, that is, although Mayor Clifford Lee has not officially stated he will re-offer.

After being criticized in a recent Guardian editorial, he now "speaks for the restaurants and other businesses in Charlottetown when I say that we appreciate the business from rural Islanders just as we appreciate when our citizens shop locally."

The mayor, in his opinion, Guardian Jan. 19, could have said this before being criticized for saying nothing about the inn’s treatment of West Prince customers, who were refused lodging.

Since Charlottetown depends on rural customers, as the mayor said, he shouldn’t have had to be pushed to defend anyone for his personal silence.
