Follow your peers’ example on council

Recently in North Saanich, there has been a tremendous amount of flack precipitated against North Saanich Council

Recently in North Saanich, there has been a tremendous amount of flack precipitated against North Saanich Council.

Specifically, some residents have become quite upset about the majority of council approving projects and developments key to keeping my community fresh, new and growing.

There are two things very clear that need to be approached as a result of recent sizzling discourses.

The first: North Saanich council was elected in 2011 to represent the residents.

Out of the six elected councillors, four are progressive and pro-future.

Just because they didn’t vote the same as the mayor doesn’t mean they’re staging a coup.

Second: to keep anything vibrant and fresh in our society, we must encourage new opportunities for growth and development.

We must fundamentally understand that for our schools and businesses to run we need students and employees — we need people!

Therefore, I would suggest to council to follow their peers’ example and make North Saanich a better place.
