ECO Depot spawns three potential candidates
A group of disgruntled South Cowichan residents vocally opposed to the CVRD’s Cameron-Taggart Road ECO Depot proposal has announced three members will run in the November municipal election.
Cameron-Taggart Group’s Joseph Gollner told the News Leader Pictorial CT Group candidates competing in the race are Angela Auchincloss (for Area A, Mill Bay/Malahat), Kelly Musselwhite (for Area B, Shawnigan Lake), and Dara Quast (for Area C, Cobble Hill).
None of the trio could be reached before press time. And it remains unclear whether they are running as a team.
According to Gollner, however, “it’s fair to say the three of them, Angela, Kelly and Dara, are obviously members of the CT Group and are friends and we’re certainly going to help them in any way we can. But we have, shall we say, mixed political backgrounds.”
Gollner pointed out the ECO Depot is “literally just one issue” and isn’t dominating their bids for directors positions.
“Certainly the ECO Depot is one issue, but it’s only one issue,” he said. “For example, Angela is running in Mill Bay and she lives in Mill Bay. The Mill Bay issues are not necessarily ECO Depot issues. They’re sewer… tonight they’re having that public hearing on the marina, and the development issues on again, off again with Bamberton.”
