Saanich council overlooks mistakes

Councillors support EDPA activists, who falsely define “species” on political boundaries instead of biological essentials

If Saanich Coun. Vicki Sanders ordered a vegetarian meal in a restaurant but was served something containing meat, then on complaining was told their definition was different from other people’s, would she think of ever visit it again?

If Vic Derman purchased a new electric car at a premium price after being told it was a special South Island design, yet in visiting Portland, Ore. saw many on the street, would he sue the seller?

If Dean Murdock took a bicycle to a shop to have a vibration fixed, but on being told he had to buy a new one obtained a second opinion that it only needed one spoke replaced, would he deal with the first shop anyway because it feels good?

If Judy Brownoff took her computer to someone for warranty repair, and they took a year to fix it despite promising two weeks, how would she do?

They support such behaviour from EDPA activists, who falsely define “species” on political boundaries instead of biological essentials, claim some species only live here when they are common to the south, include buildings and pavement in their list of ecologically sensitive areas, and avoid fixing their mistakes.
