The Comox electorate must be wary of the candidates who only have a single-issue green agenda.
We must elect people with a strong, balanced platform supportive of economic growth.
Municipalities have an important role in creating opportunities particularly for small businesses. The current Comox council gives the impression that grants and infrastructure money are free gifts to play with rather than taxpayers’ money.
To consider a bike path wise use of a million-dollar infrastructure fund is just plain wrong.
Such money is to be used to provide for future development. That is hardly a neon-coated bike path that will be tarred over the next time the road is resurfaced. Such thinking falls clearly into the single-issue green agenda.
I urge all Comox voters in particular to pay close attention to those candidates who have this green agenda, as they do not have the general welfare of all the Comox citizens as their priority.
