Looks the CVRD is reaping what it sows

Dear editor

My response to CVRD chair’s ire over angry email:

Well, Mrs. Giles, what you served up isn’t tasting that good now is it? As the main influence on the contentious issue of the ECO Depot you have for two years caused people in this community to be upset, then angry, and finally to have to spend their own money to go to the Supreme Court to make you listen. Why is it you are now upset at your community responding in such a manner?

You have spent thousands of our tax dollars not listening to the same community. Cobble Hill, Mill Bay and Shawnigan Lake are made up of people who elected representatives to represent us, to protect what we hold dear and listen to our concerns. This is something that in the past two years has been deliberately lost by our representatives.

You have nothing but your own arrogance to blame. I think on Nov. 19 our communities will send you a message you might understand.
