Port Stanley News RSS Feed  Letters Council Members Opposition

May 12, 2016

I am confused! It was reported that four council members were opposed to the purchase of the Quint fire truck and yet they went on to a unanimous vote to purchase it. If my math is correct they could have not supported the bylaw and stopped the purchase of this piece of equipment as council would not have a quorum. They could have said to remove it from the bylaw and then support the remainder of the bylaw.

It appears to me they are only paying lip service to the public but not really doing their position its just dues. In my books this is very hypocritical thus making them hypocrites. When are we going to see council members with the intestinal fortitude to stand up for themselves and their constituents. Whether this piece of equipment is needed at this time is very subjective and should be looked at further. Lets slow things down a bit and not over commit our moneys all at once. Our taxes are going up fast enough as it is.

John L Bolt.
