Metchosin must enact referendum

Each Metchosin elected council member stated they “would abide by the results of the referendum.”

Each of the Metchosin elected council members stated on more than one formal and public occasion during their campaign that they “would abide by the results of the referendum.”

As a consequence their election to office was partly attributable to such a stand.

Therefore the issue is no longer one of democratic action or legality (as some would want) but one of integrity.

Now apparently councillors Moralea Milne and Jo Mitchell wish to add multiple caveats and thereby subvert what should be a simple straightforward bylaw.

So much for integrity.
