I can’t believe we have just come through an election, and the majority of voters supported the re-election of Teunis Westbroek only to see an elected council bent on marginalizing the position of mayor, and running our town as they see fit.
The action by council on December 5 was not only an insult to the elected mayor but an insult to the 60 per cent of voters who supported his re-election.
If these actions by council are an example of what residents of Qualicum Beach can expect we are in for a long three years.
Mr. Dutton (The News, Dec. 9)was apparently overjoyed with watching “Democracy” in action on December 5.
What we really witnessed was the failure of this council to vote reflecting the will of the majority of Qualicum Beach residents.
