Now that the majority on Sechelt council have manipulated us to where they want us at the spot between a rock and a hard place for the Sechelt sewage treatment plant financing referendum, are we going to give them a stamp of approval?
Or are we going to send them and future councils a message that they must consult with citizens before making the most important decisions?
Are we going to keep their hands off municipal funds that they could use for questionable projects like airport expansion until after the next election when the new council can legitimately arrange the same proper financing, or are we going to give them an open cheque book?
That cheque book lately has been given a workout as it spends public funds advertising for council's preferred political outcome in the referendum. It is time to decide: stamp of approval, cowed into submission or ready and willing to take back our destiny into our own hands.
