Letter to Comox council re. delegation denial

Dear Mayor and Council,

I am writing as a dismayed, disappointed citizen at your decision to not hear the resolution request, asking you to join with other communities and First Nations in opposition to proposals by Enbridge and Kinder Morgan.

I feel your decision was totally anti-democratic. Vote on the resolution as you must but to not even allow it to be presented is amazing.

Your stand is completely disrespectful to the K’omoks First Nation who are opposed to the Northern Gateway project. Do you remember what you say on the Town of Comox banner on your website; “We respectfully acknowledge that we live work and play on the traditional lands of the K’omoks First Nation”. I write in the hope that you will revisit this issue and at least hear the resolution.

Wendy Prothero
