Process to approve new RCMP detachment underhanded

The Municipality of North Cowichan twists democracy to remain cops landlord!

Soon the Cowichan Valley will get a new cop shop on the backs of the North Cowichan taxpayers. Well done! The scheme of using junk mail to ensure approval was foolproof.

With this dirty, underhanded process to guarantee your agenda, a few questions come up.

Firstly, the thousands of dollars in rent revenue, where does that go? It should be applied directly to the loan, guaranteed by the North Cowichan taxpayers to shorten the loan and save the citizens some tax. Open the books and let’s have transparency.

You people should be ashamed. Democracy my foot!
