Little recourse to a council decision

Re: Drop unfair language, PNR April 23.

Thank you for the well done article. I have been phoning  Town Hall almost once a week starting in October. They told me I needed to wait for the developer’s presentation to the community. So I waited.

After that I was told we would be advised when Council would start discussing  the project. As close as I was trying to stay up on it, I never knew they had voted on it already. I knew going in it was a lost cause but decided to make my presentation for the audience’s sake ... most there did not know the full story and the full impact.

Councilor Chad said the only recourse we have now was to start a petition but that requires a lot of time and I am a caregiver. It is so sad when you can not trust your own council.

I moved to Sidney seven years ago from North Saanich and always knew that if the market fell, I could lose money but I never dreamed the council would cause me to lose money and enjoyment in my home.
