CVRD inauguration underwhelms

Dear editor,

We attended the inauguration of the new CVRD board Dec.  11 (in the Best Western, due to flooding). We were impressed with the new and incumbent directors, all duly elected and appointed. Then they rubber stamped the CVRD administrations recommendation on auditors and consultants “aye aye all in favour” – unanimous, with barely a  blink of the eye.

No  question about the future  liability of the HMCS Quadra sewer pipe – obviously a DND liability until today – now a liability of CVRD taxpayers, all of us in the  Comox Valley.

A very merry Christmas and best wishes for  a  happy, healthy and “democratic” New Year!
