I would like to provide clarification regarding inaccuracies associated with Ed East’s letter in the October 1 edition of the Peninsula News Review. In his letter, Mr. East suggests that two Council meetings were cancelled in September — that is false.
A Committee of the Whole meeting was cancelled on September 2 as there were no specific agenda items. The council meeting on September 22 was cancelled because of the UBCM Convention, however, there was a Special Council meeting on September 29 to make up for it.
I would strongly urge Mr. East to get his facts correct before he decides to submit more letters to the Editor. Responsibility and accountability are a two-way street.
