Sandown deal was pure luck

There is no doubt that the current Sandown deal is better for North Saanich

Re: Councillors Saved Us, PNR, Oct. 16.

There is no doubt that the current Sandown deal is better for North Saanich.  However, let’s call the earlier decision to turn the proposal down what it was: gambling.

At the time, Mr. Randall said he would be putting the property up for sale, and didn’t even hint that he might return with a better offer. Councillors Browne, Mearns, McBride and Daly spun the dial on the ‘Treasures of Sandown’ slot machine and won.

It was luck, pure and simple. Team North Saanich and Councillor Daly ought to book a trip to Las Vegas forthwith.
