Recently our municipality (through our semi-elected representatives) was afforded an opportunity to discuss something of rather significant importance in Saanich. Funny enough, it was not about the number of “likes” or censorship of their online profiles.
Rather, this should rightly have been a discussion about expanding natural gas services in our locality. As the “pipe dreams” and LNG aspirations continue to unravel less than five kilometres from my home at the epicenter of our capital, I am still unable to connect a gas appliance anywhere along my street. At present, it seems that I might be better served by moving to a remote Philippine Island to take delivery of this precious resource.
On the topic of hot air, perhaps our council can step away from Facebook for a few days and rise to the task of ensuring that natural gas is expanded in our physical community. I can assure you that the good citizens of this municipality ensure that Saanich’s reputation will be just fine.
