Municipality shouldn’t incur project costs

District of Oak Bay getting involved in health-care discussion

This is a case of a private company going to a municipality, which does not have jurisdiction over health care, asking permission to develop choice property and provide health care.

A thorough study of the legal implications of involving the municipality in this decision, or the long-term consequences thereof, should have been done before proceeding.

The municipality should not be picking up the tab for such things as traffic pattern studies and parking.
