I feel the primary responsibility of our local government, and government at all levels is to ensure that its citizens have clean drinking water, unpolluted air and protection of our land as a food source.
In Sidney, North Saanich and Central Saanich, that also means that we need protection for our ocean water as well. Before we go to the polls, we need to find out who the candidates are and who will work to protect our beautiful peninsula. We all need to go to the all-candidates meetings, ask questions and then vote.
The forums hosted by the Saanich Peninsula Chamber of Commerce would like the questions sent to them ahead of time. Visit www.peninsulachamber.ca for the forum details.
Vote for someone who is concerned about our environment, and is committed to vote and stand up for us on this important issue.
