LETTER: Saanich candidates need to talk about amalgamation

Many candidates appear intent on avoiding the issue, but voters deserve to know their views on this critical issue

A big issue in the upcoming Saanich elections will certainly be amalgamation.

What do individual candidates think about the issue? The people at AmalgamationYes sent a questionnaire to all local candidates, but their summary contains a response from only one Saanich candidate.

Are they instead sharing their amalgamation views on their own websites? I found a few that did, but most (including all the incumbents) are silent on the issue.

Many candidates appear intent on avoiding the issue, but voters deserve to know their views on this critical issue.

Of course, some of these websites haven’t been updated since the last election, which is equally puzzling.

I certainly will not be voting for any candidate that won’t make their position clear.
