LETTER: Letter writers throw barbs at mayoral candidates

Both Dean Fortin and Ida Chong have their detractors

 

I find it hard to believe that Mayor Fortin has the support of the business community.

In the past six years the vacancy rate in  Victoria Downtown has  increased and I sense that business people are looking for opportunities elsewhere.

Maybe Fortin means that he has the support of business people in Shanghai where he created jobs making defective components for the Johnson Street bridge.

T. W. Morley, Victoria

Mayoral candidate Ida Chong is hoping that Victorians will forget the saga she was involved in with regard to her expense claims as an MLA in 2010.

The Oak Bay constituents did not forget last year when they decided to vote for the Green Party rather than for the NDP when everyone knows that Oak Bay is staunch Liberal. .
