Writer’s wants unreasonable

Re: Councillor fails on chemtrails (Letters, Oct. 15)

Kudos to Ben Isitt for prioritizing his work as councillor and the extra time he spends on assisting residents of the City of Victoria with their individual projects and concerns.

Letter-writer Gregory Hartnell’s expectation to have a paid elected official become his own personal research assistant for fringe science is completely nonsensical and an unreasonable expectation.

Mr. Isitt is an approachable, reasonable, intelligent and accommodating city councillor. I applaud him for the numerous achievements he has been a part of on council and for the work he does in the community in his own spare time.

If Mr. Hartnell is as concerned about “chemtrails” as he states, I would recommend he conduct his own research and data gathering first and then present the results to council rather than expect others to do all the work for him.
