This time we face a proposed LNG facility in Saanich Inlet and unelected Planning Manager Ross Blackwell has reportedly been telling the public and our elected representatives that they must not take sides but remain neutral or face legal action.
We are being poorly served and that is putting it mildly. If the politicians, in this case Mill Bay-Malahat Director Kerry Davis, are to be misled around by the nose, why pray do we needed elected representatives at all.
A disturbing pattern is emerging through the Cowichan Valley government bodies where ‘Weak as Water’ politicians are both inviting and allowing senior staff to interfere in the political process.
Who will stand up for the residents concerns? Why do we elect Directors if they will not look out for the communities needs and interests? Stay tuned. There are more shoes to drop. Many more.
