Bickering over question outrageous

Duncan – I am outraged and dismayed that our locally elected officials are placing their personal agendas above the wishes of their electorate.

Talk to an average Joe or Joan on the street, and the majority of them will say that amalgamation needs to be looked into. In fact, a survey done by the City of Duncan itself revealed that over 67 per cent of its citizens are in favour of taking a deeper look at amalgamation. Yet, our councils cannot even agree on the wording of a question to be put on the ballot. Councillors, remember that an election is coming up! I hope that on Nov. 15, voters will voice their dissatisfaction with the current council members who are thinking of their own futures rather than the future of the Valley.
