Referendum needed

Majority of North Saanich councilors want to hurry on with development, believing this was what they were elected to do, says reader

The majority of North Saanich councilors want to hurry on with development, believing this was what they were elected to do.

During the election I did not hear they were going to completely ignore the Official Community Plan. I did not hear they were going to ignore due process to allow legitimate public input. I did not hear their main goal is to look after the profits of property speculators.

This council is opening the door to unending development in North Saanich. The community’s wishes as expressed in the OCP are to be completely ignored to allow a very high density of housing.

Now the proposals are clear, we need a referendum to decide if the voters do want this process to continue.
