Wasting times and taxes

I have watched the conduct of the North Saanich council and cannot contain my frustration any longer. I just read about the motion to remove the word ‘significant’ from the website description of the proposed amendments to the District’s Regional Context Statement and Coun. Browne’s comment that the word was “an emotive response” by Mayor Finall to the proposed amendment.

As I reside on McDonald Park Road, one of the areas that would be, dare I say it, significantly affected by this amendment, I do not understand how the council feels it has the right to waste my time and my hard earned tax dollars.

The contempt displayed [by the council majority] to those on council who hold different views is an embarrassment. I can assure you that your counterproductive records will not be forgotten, come election time.
