Groups hold the power

Whatever group of the moment that has the power with the politicians gets whatever they want, no matter how ridiculous it is

I am responding to Mr. David Anderson’s letter. I was once this naive regarding issues of common sense.

The truth is in Victoria and Greater Victoria it works like this: whatever group of the moment that has the power with the politicians gets whatever they want, no matter how ridiculous it is.

They can move anything, even boats off a lake. Facts do not matter, common sense does not matter, right and wrong does not matter. Just to let Mr. Anderson know, the group of residents on Elk Lake and the west side of the highway are the power group for now.

Be glad that it is not in the hands of Saanich council and that the entire CRD will decide. Unless they refer it to Transport Canada. Not being sarcastic, it is just one of those pesky facts.
