Burden should be shared equally

The Editor, Re: "Where should problems go?" Now letters, Aug. 26.

Garry Pederson, I think the people of Newton are asking for the communities of the city to shoulder the burden equally, instead of continually dumping the problems into Newton and not providing anywhere near the support required to that community. Why doesn’t the city simply publish the percentages of halfway houses, correctional services located in each of the city’s communities? Surely then we can see if Newton is being dealt with unfairly.

Sounds like a simple enough solution, no? Think this will happen? I don’t.
