I agree with Qualicum Beach Mayor Teunis Westbrook’s remarks regarding union representatives when he said: “If I was a union employee, I would have serious doubts…”

My own doubts are four-fold:

• I believe the union leader is new to this area.

• Such a huge dispute hasn’t happened in our township for many years, if ever.

• The garbage truck video episode.

• The reasons, attempts and efforts by our council to resolve this dispute is commendable. Read Town Tidings, a paid advertisement from the town, on Page A12 of the Aug. 20 edition of The NEWS.
