WHITEHORSE HAS BEEN SUFFERING from an identity crisis ever since a consulting firm unveiled a controversial new logo as part of a proposal to revamp the city’s image last month.
Vanessa Brault, a city maintenance worker, hated the new logo so much that she gathered nearly 900 signatures in one week for a petition to keep the old emblem.
“We’re moving really fast on this project, people really don’t know what’s going on,” Ms. Brault said. “I think we need to slow down a bit and get more public involvement.”
“The city of Whitehorse just put up the taxes, 16% in four years,” Ms. Brault added. “Just to see that this is where it would go to — this terribly ugly logo — I couldn’t handle it.”
There’s a bigger story than what I could fit in the Post story. I hope to write a longer piece on it soon.
