Re: Taking the next steps in sewage treatment (Letters, Aug. 27).
The letter by Cairine Green has very much left me with my mouth open.
Where does a person even start to respond to her statement of the escalation of heat on Esquimalt’s mayor and council?
Why even bring this up? Of course they have the right to refuse, the larger question here is why the Capital Region allowed themselves to be harnessed to a single horse in the first place?
Then there is the attitude with the public finger pointing. Please tell us Ms. Green, would any taxpayer sit and not voice their concerns with the way this has been handled, or, perhaps her politics would have us accept these types of decisions with absolutely no filtering? It’s good that you have gotten yourself up to date with this issue, and I completely agree with your comments that knowledge is power, it is also said however, that knowledge not shared is knowledge stolen.
Perhaps now that you are up-to-date you could tell us how we have come to be in this predicament, and better how to get out of it? Or shall we continue to let the decision be made in council without pesky taxpayer interference?
Please don’t sell us taxpayers short, we have no problem understanding clear and concise dialogue presented in a timely manner.
I also hope that we change course and take a direction that inspires new leadership, because the bullying and bribery obviously has not worked.
