In my hometown’s weekly newspaper, a summer-resident or cottager is upset that some people don’t like cottagers.
My hometown has around 15,000 residents through the winter and 150,000 in the summer. These summer-residents do pay taxes that help run our town, but they also vote for things that affect them to the detriment of year-long residents. I didn’t live in town as an adult for long enough to have a strong opinion of the cottagers, but i do recall cottagers voted for an official who would prevent a new resort from opening up, thus denying locals a new source of jobs.
Even if I were strongly in the pro-cottager camp (I am, in fact, a fence-sitter), I wouldn’t be too upset about free speech. If Mr Wilson wants everyone to publicly agree on everything, he should move to the very rural country just north of the one I currently live in.
