LETTER: Expensive decision

In regarding Sandspit owner Mathew Jelly, I understand that tourists support your business as well as Islanders for the whole short summer season.

A recent article (P.E.I. businesses feeling extra strain, June 30) stated that it could take five to 10 years to catch up due to the pandemic. I completely understand that, but it was also a terrible choice to make parents or anyone to get on the grounds even if they’re not going on any rides.

This is the first year that everyone needs to buy a bracelet. A family of four, therefore, has to pay $90 even if they are not going on the rides.

I can guarantee you the Islanders are also suffering and this is no way to get business by making everyone pay now. Many may decide not to go back. 

Cathy Campbell,
