FIG and FUG in Central Saanich

In Calgary, city council is promising to drop the acronyms and special jargon in favour of plain talk

In Calgary, city council is promising to drop the acronyms and special jargon in favour of plain talk.

Central Saanich council should drop their FIG and FUG talk and admit what their plans are to justify a new firehall: development and higher taxes. Just as we feared.

They will weaken the RGS (Regional Growth Strategy) even further in the (CRD) Capital Regional District, so that our OCP will become worthless.

Mayor Bryson is Chair of the CRD.

Oh yes, FIG and FUG …  Future Urban Growth and Future Industrial Growth.

Council is deciding your future, people. Good-bye rural Central Saanich and hello urban sprawl.
