LETTERS: North Saanich is not the bad guy

The Mary Winspear site should never have been a consideration (for Sidney’s community safety building).

The Mary Winspear site should never have been a consideration (for Sidney’s community safety building). The ‘Trust’ will and should hold firm.

Sidney has an industrial area. The fire and ambulance facilities should have always been on that side of the highway, in my opinion.

North Saanich is not the ‘bad guy’ in this case. They are the responsible voice of the law in this matter. I believe wasting time and money on further litigation and inquiry is an infringement on tax payers dollars.

Start thinking rather than assuming. So far it’s two strikes on location. Obviously, the decision makers can’t always get what they want.

However, having high rise development being built on sidewalks is apparently okay, so I will presume that safety concerns for this community is a non-issue anyway.
