With the civic elections over, let’s recap this dog park business, because our new Comox Town council will soon tackle the thorny issue of whether or not Fido is having a good time.
On one hand, we had Mr. C. writing letters to editors saying anyone who doesn’t want a dog park in their neighborhood is an elitist NIMBY. I don’t know where elitism enters the picture. I take it to mean people who have opinions that differ from his.
But Mrs. C. wrote a letter to the editor saying a dog park can go anywhere, which may have led to some stony silences between those two.
Meanwhile, pacing nervously behind door No. 3, we have someone signing her letters as a dog outlaw. I’m not sure what that is. It sounds like a name for a sociopath.
But democracy always provides a reality check. Their dog park candidate received a sound thrashing in the election. Apparently their bark was worse than their bite.
Ain’t democracy grand?
At least some of them finally fessed up and admitted they don’t want just one dog park, they want lots of dog parks.
Good luck, council.
