PENINSULA letter: Debate is essential

Councillor Kenny Podmore should realize that political debate is essential to the health and well-being of Sidney. This is a beautiful place and it is being threatened by proposed developments nearby, an ageing population, a lack of affordable housing for young families.

It would also be most interesting to know why so many of council’s discussions of municipal affairs, (panhandling, for example) are now held secretly, in-camera.

Jon Blair, Sidney
