North Saanich is very fortunate the Sandown suitor came calling again, after having his overtures spurned by Councillors Daly, Mearns, Browne and McBride.
While one might argue the engagement diamond is indeed larger, these four risked losing the Sandown lands jewel completely.
North Saanich would have been the poorer had their gamble not turned in our favour and I for one am pleased the Sandown proposal, which I have always supported, is going ahead. It was a huge risk to the community to roll the dice on an opportunity like Sandown.
Elsie McMurphy, Councillor
