WEB EXTRA: Double standard or simple hypocrisy?

Dear editor,

Coun. Patti Fletcher, supported by Mayor Ives and Couns. Turner and MacKinnon banned election signs from public property.

Dear editor,

It hasn’t been more than a few weeks ago that Coun. Patti Fletcher, supported by Mayor Ives and Couns. Turner and MacKinnon decided to ban election signs from Comox public property.

The bylaw didn’t pass in time to enforce for this municipal election but it is interesting to see the behaviour of these same people now running for re-election that were so virtuous to change the democratic process in our community and how they have actually placed their signs.

Obviously Mayor Ives believes that locating his signs on public property during this election is a good idea for his campaign.

Hmmmm. Do I detect a double standard here or simply hypocrisy? You be the judge.

Paul Deeton,

Courtenay
