Oak Bay can’t go it alone on deer cull

Your reader hit a strong point when he mentioned that as taxpayers we would be on the hook financially for culling all the deer

Your reader hit a strong point when he mentioned that as taxpayers we would be on the hook financially for culling all the deer, seeing as Oak Bay wants to go it alone. The only way to resolve this would be to have a cull region-wide.

Our present mayor does not seem to care about the costs and wants to bulldoze ahead regardless. It is nice to know that his mayoralty opponent is well aware of these mounting costs and wants cull costs spread across the CRD. She realizes that we cannot do it alone.

When the present mayor urged the CRD to extend the pilot project deadline it was only good until next March. After that without other community aid Oak Bay taxpayers will even greater amounts of money for this endeavour.
