Environmental stance questioned

What strikes me is that there would be such backlash on an environmental bylaw from a community that votes Green nationally

After seeing your community’s environmental bylaws highlighted in the National Post I read through the related stories in the Saanich News.

What strikes me is that there would be such backlash from a community that votes Green nationally, has a strong NDP environmentalist as its MLA and sports what appears to be a very environmentally conscious council.

Obviously all are doing what the majority of voters wish, and that is vigourusly protecting the environment. No free ride on that one.
