Association is non-partisan

The DPECA executive has no mandate from the membership to engage in the partisan activities and does not do so

Re: Lack of respect, PNR, Aug. 30

In Sheilah Fea’s letter to the editor she stated that the “Dean Park Association” supports North Saanich Mayor Alice Finall.

She likely meant the Dean Park Estates Community Association, often referred to as the DPECA.

This volunteer group, which exists to support and inform the 780 households that comprise the Dean Park Estates subdivision, does not support, endorse or oppose any Mayors, Councillors or electoral candidates in the District.

The DPECA executive has no mandate from the membership to engage in the partisan activities and does not do so.

Despite Sheilah Fea’s incorrect insinuation to the contrary, we want to assure our membership and the public that as an association, DPECA continues to uphold this policy.
