One simple question for Courtenay councillors

Dear editor,

To clear up misconceptions about Maple Pool Campsite, I would ask all of the Courtenay councillors this same question:

Dear editor,

To clear some of the misconceptions and maybe confusion on the issue of Maple Pool Campsite, I would ask all of the Courtenay councillors this same question:

Based on the information you have, are you in favour of pursuing the lawsuit against Maple Pool? Simple yes or no is sufficient.

I understand governance, in that, if the majority of the council votes one way, the rest of the council must follow on decisions.

However, when I was on the Board of Education, we were allowed to divulge “how” we voted in camera, or opinions on a subject, however we weren’t allowed to discuss the details of a particular situation.

I trust you would all feel comfortable in making your vote known without divulging the legalities of this situation.

Looking forward to your prompt response.

Jean Rowe,

Comox Valley
