The Lakeview Credit Union advertises that they are a community minded business; unfortunately their recent actions do not reflect that. it is encouraging to see them expanding, however a 30 day notice of eviction to the business that is being displaced is not in the best interest of the community.
It is well known that commercial space is scarce in Tumbler Ridge and a minimum 90 day notice would be more in line with the reality of relocating a business. We value all our local businesses and the loss of one would be a huge blow to the community.
We realize that these decisions are not made at the local level and encourage residents to express their concerns to the Board of Directors via letter or email to firstname.lastname@example.org or log on to www.lvcu.
