LETTER: Esquimalt mayor an unfair target

Barb Desjardins perceptive enough to understand that sewage proposal was not in the best interest of Esquimalt

Re: Judge Fortin on his accomplishments (Letters, Dec. 3)

While Dan Reeve is entitled to put as positive a spin as he can on failed mayoralty of Dean Fortin in Victoria, it is unfortunate that he resorts to taking a cheap shot at Esquimalt’s highly successful mayor, Barb Desjardins.

It is clear Desjardins opposed the sewage-treatment plan that would have involved the building of the now notorious poop palace at McLoughlin Point, not because of a politically opportunistic calculation,” but because she was perceptive enough to understand that the proposal was not in the best interest of the people of Esquimalt or anyone else in the Capital Region for that matter.
