YouTube video calls on the Town of Fort Erie to do more to fix its economic woes

2/13/2013

A video has surfaced on YouTube that calls on Fort Erie Town Council to do more to resolve the issues that have plagued the southern tier community over the last few years.

Titled "State of Fort Erie", the black and white video, set to the Pink Floyd song "On The Turning Away", shows boarded up storefronts and houses. interspersed with comments such as "While you voted to spend money on a lighthouse with no real benefit to our economy, you ignored the needs of our children" and "While you were fighting over an approved condo, you failed to look up and around you."

The video's description says while it's not meant to represent all of Fort Erie, it was created "simply to serve as a wake up call" about Fort Erie's economy and a message to councilors and to all of those who oppose development.
