Still no accountability for Maple Pool lawsuit

Incumbents act as though they were not part of this decision

Dear editor,

I would like to thank the Comox Valley Chamber of Commerce for facilitating a very informative all-candidates meeting on Nov. 5.

As a new resident of Courtenay, it allowed me to ask some questions and to meet the candidates face to face. Having followed the Maple Pool issue in the media, I was pleased to see that all candidates are in favour of ending the legal action and seeking a kinder, more thoughtful resolution.

However, considering the cost to taxpayers and the disruption of the lives of the residents of Maple Pool, I was disappointed that not one of the incumbents, at least four of who had to have voted in favour of this legal action, did not think it necessary to apologize for this mistake and merely acted as though they were not part of this decision. Perhaps it is time for Courtenay residents to select some new councillors who are willing to be accountable for their actions.
