We don’t need that kind of protection

If the MOE can not protect one of the essentials of life I don’t feel safe having them barge into CVRD’s affairs.

Re: letter to the editor, Friday, Jan. 8 “Province should protect us from regional district”

Not sure we need that type of protection. Consider: CVRD had a bylaw in place for many years to protect the Shawnigan watershed from toxic soil being imported.

Our provincial government threw aside that bylaw and issued a 50-year permit to haul in toxic soil.

If the MOE can not protect one of the essentials of life I don’t feel safe having them barge into CVRD’s affairs.

To stop salaries doubling again and again some of the “wasted” money could be used to set up yet another committee to govern salaries and bring them in line with the world outside CVRD. All in favour, raise your hands.
