Re: Saanich credits Uptown with easing tax hike (News, May 25)
It speaks volumes that our Saanich politicos can turn a blind eye to the Uptown developmental sewage and try and superimpose the cut in civic taxes (all of $10 yearly).
First off, the development site is on our SSW border so the name speaks to the Saanich slate and their view of downtown being Victoria.
The development is disgusting in appearance and fails in parking, traffic chaos and appeal to those who live in close proximity – especially to the north. And the condo towers are still to come.
It’s a pity that our ‘glorious leader’ and his slate of Saanich is akin to ‘the emperor with no clothes.’ Their continued incumbency counts on the ongoing fact that 80 per cent of the civic electorate remains DOA with regard to civic involvement.
