The City of Courtenay and City council should be truly embarrassed by their recent actions to attempt to evict 56 vulnerable people from Maple Pool.
It finally took a Supreme Court judge to intervene, and not only scold the City, but finally provide the leadership, compassion and understanding that has, up to now, been sorely lacking by our own local government.
Given the recent arrogant and cavalier comments regarding their free-spending habits displayed by certain council members, it wouldn’t be surprising to find that they are the driving force behind these actions to make these people homeless.
It is sad to see that we have only one council member, our Mayor Jangula, who has stood by his belief that a solution needed to be found to keep these vulnerable members of our community in their homes and off the streets.
Thank you, Mayor Jangula. For the rest of council, shame on you.
