LETTER: Get amalgamation study moving

It is a troubling and totally unnecessary question which the Mayor wants to put before Saanich voters

I trust Saanich voters will pay scant attention to the baffle gaff coming out of Saanich council, and their supporters, with regard to amalgamation, and will support only those candidates who will show leadership on the pro-amalgamation front.

The writer “ Saanich plays long game on A-Word” Saanich News on Oct. 17, neglects to mention that Mayor Frank Leonard needs no approval from Saanich voters to study governance in Saanich. So, in fact it is a troubling and totally unnecessary question which the Mayor wants to put before Saanich voters.  Talk about obfuscation. It is positive to see, however, that Mayor Leonard has finally, after so many years in power, seen the light regarding governance in Saanich. What we need, however, is a study on governance in the Capital Region.

So lets get on with a provincial study regarding amalgamation in the Greater Victoria Area.
