How much did Comox Valley Regional District referendum cost?

Dear editor,

Regarding the recent vote on rural garbage:

Dear editor,

Regarding the recent vote on rural garbage:

Although the proposal by area directors was soundly defeated by approximately three-quarters of those who voted, I think a few questions should be put to the board chair and Area C director Edwin Grieve.

1. Sun Coast waste services put in a bit $275,000 lower than the multi-national companies. Why then was their bid not accepted?

2. Why would our elected area reps want to destroy a local established Canadian business?

3. How much did this referendum cost us taxpayers?

I would have thought that when Sun Coast Waste services who were a local and a Canadian company requested a meeting to find out why their low bid was not accepted and were told, “No meeting is necessary, as there is nothing to discuss” shows me that the area reps’ minds were made up well before the bids were in.

I think if anyone should have been given a chance to ask a few questions, it should have been the lowest bidder. Let’s hope people remember this come next election for our area reps.

It would seem some of them do not care about the people they were elected to represent. Why is the question?

Mike Lazare,

Black Creek
