The MOU signed between the Town of Sidney and the Memorial Park Society Board to construct a public safety building on the land south of the Mary Winspear Centre should be of concern to residents of North Saanich.
My understanding is the Centre and lands were dedicated for the mutual benefit of both communities as opposed to the exclusive benefit of either. The proposed building will solely benefit Sidney residents.
Residents of North Saanich including the Winspear family made a significant contribution to the initial project and continue to fund the Society.
As a believer in a future amalgamation or even a sharing of a municipal hall, I believe the lands should be held for a project that can benefit residents of both communities.
