LETTER: Flawed process guiding Victoria's future

Victoria should hold referendum on OCP as well as Crystal Pool

I am delighted to hear that Victoria's city council has agreed to send the proposed Crystal Pool replacement project to a public referendum, clearly an appropriate process for such a monumental expenditure.

Meanwhile, an even greater shift in public policy, the amendments in the Official Community Plan, are being left to a deeply flawed public consultation process in a foreshortened timeframe. Please let us have a referendum on the OCP. The question might be, "Do you want 4-storey or 6-storey buildings in all neighbourhoods on all streets or, none of the above?" Please answer, "Yes" or, "No".
