Council’s antics worthy of middle school
What is the real problem with the North Saanich council?
The atmosphere and antics displayed is what you might expect to find in a middle school and not from adults trusted with making decisions on behalf of the citizens of North Saanich.
I have read Mr. Grifone’s report. I thought it was very well done and provides valuable facts and information for council and citizens. I attended the housing forum meeting and my impressions of Mr. Grifone is that he is very professional and I find it difficult to believe that he could not handle all questions directed to him without help from anyone.
The result of the unnecessary intervention by some members of council has only caused him to have to wait longer to be paid for his good work.
The voters in North Saanich are only a little over a year away from an opportunity to change the make up of council.
I urge those citizens who believe in civil debate and respect for opposing views to consider offering their service and run for council in 2014.
I know I could do better and I am sure there are others who have the back ground and interest to do the work and bring civility and respect into the council chamber.
