Feel the love, Parksville

Those we elect should remember their promises after the vote

Maybe some of the current council members weren’t being completely honest when, during the campaign we — yes including myself — promoted our beliefs regarding the OCP, or was that only for the purpose of gaining votes?

I recall a candidate, now on council, saying, lets buy all the beach front and turn it into a park! I believed we, as candidates, were to actually mean what we said in public.

I wonder if this might have something to do with why people don’t vote, or, why I didn’t get elected? Maybe?

How about the mileage some candidates, now on council, got from trashing the previous council over spending on consultants. Not feeling as confident now? Need to spend another pile of our tax dollars to feel the love?
