This week’s Westerly News online poll:

Let your voice be heard! Tell us what you think! One way to do that is our online poll.

Visit www.westerlynews.ca online to answer this week’s poll question:

The Ukee ANAF closed down and Tofino is mulling a convention centre. Do we need more venues for events on the West Coast?

a) We need more venues in my town. Venues provide a vibrant cultural life for residents and promote events that draw visitors.

b) We need to use the ones we have better. I can think of several struggling West Coast venues that need to be enjoyed more.

c) Too costly to taxpayers to construct new venues. Enough! Make do, wear it out.

d) Who has time/money/energy to go out to venues? Chillax at home.
