Say ‘no’ to taxpayer-funded improvements to curling rink

Dear editor,

We are very concerned that we haven’t seen anything in either of the papers about the deadline coming up for opposing the Comox Valley Recreation Complexes Bylaw 327,2014, regarding expensive improvements to the curling rink, which will be added to taxpayers’ bills.

The council chose to use the Alternative Approval Process, an underhanded method whereby this bill automatically passes unless a sufficient number of people take the time and energy to go to the CVRD office and sign an opposition form.

So all those opposed to this bill, please take note: the deadline for  registering your opposition is Friday June 13, so be sure to stop by the CVRD main office at 600 Comox Road and fill out your form!
