Lease is far too generous to Trio

Dear Editor:

Re: Gordon Dawson’s letter to the editor (Herald, July 15), “Sale to the highest bidder”.

I agree with his letter but with one small nit-pick. Rather than a high bid, the lease is almost a gift.

Indeed Christmas came early for the Trio Marine Group getting five acres of waterfront for $90,000 annually, less than 0.5 per cent of its value.

One wonders if these keepers of the public purse would consider leasing their personal properties at that rate.
