Ad was far from nonpartisan

In the current political fuss in QB involving development, we learn, that illiteracy has joined the election process.

In the current political fuss in Qualicum Beach involving development, we learn, along with fears about the future, that illiteracy has joined the election process.

A group of “Concerned Citizens,” unlisted but possibly identifiable through research, have proclaimed they are nonpartisan through an ad purchased in this local newspaper. To demonstrate their lack of bias and non-support of any group over another, they proceed to aim their remarks at three specific councillors. Nonpartisan? Huh?

The three councillors — Mary Brouilette, Dave Willie and Bill Luchtmeijer — have raised the level of debate in the town’s council by questioning and challenging. This is in contrast to the “Gang of Three or Four” of the prior council.

So by all means let us have a healthy democratic challenge and election without the illiterate use of the word ‘nonpartisan.’
