Great to hear another industry would like to come to Powell River to the old mill site ["Powell River mayor supports future development at Catalyst Paper Tis’kwat site,” December 3].
The talked about hydrogen plant will not take up the acres and equipment used in a pulp and paper mill; a few small buildings to say the least.
As with Campbell River Elk Falls, our mill will eventually be torn out piece by piece. Once all the equipment and buildings are demolished the large tax base is gone and a few small buildings are not going to pick up the lost mill taxes. Vacant land pays much less.
Let’s hope we do not sign another tax break for another failing industry to come to Powell River.
