Sidney fire hall plan is a win-win

I am moved to respond to a letter in the Dec. 18 issue in respect of the proposed relocation of the fire hall in the Town of Sidney.

I believe the proposal envisioned using a portion of the large playing field area adjacent to the Sidney Elementary School. What a win-win for both the town and the school district that is strapped for much needed funds and dealing with declining enrolment. I take exception to the comments of R. B. Burns of North Saanich. However, it is very reassuring to know that citizens of “ No Saanich” are keeping a watchful eye on our town.
