What about the election?

We all have a choice. We all have to vote. In municipal politics it appears that the OCP/RCS is only as good as the people in control.

Re: Council majority gets last word, PNR April 25.

There are more significant issues at play in North Saanich that have been swept under the rug by Ted Daly and his majority council than the word ‘significant’ could even begin to describe.

With all of the developments on line and little evidence of long term municipal infrastructure contributions and environmental protection from the fast track developers, North Saanich residents will be seeing the last of their zero per cent tax increases,, putting the ‘North’ back in North Saanich as far as property tax goes.

It would appear that a majority of council don’t care about the next election as long as they get their work done before the end of term.

We all have a choice. We all have to vote.  Remember, in municipal politics it appears that the OCP/RCS is only as good as the people in control.
