Letters: Something to hide?

Perceived golden handshake riles local Sooke resident

One must presume that the gag order on the subject of Mr. Parliament’s “resignation” as reported in the Aug. 8 issue of the Sooke News Mirror, is because someone wants to hide something.

It is logical to assume that, despite the promise Mayor Milne made of a more open government, that something is to conceal the size of Mr. Parliament’s settlement. Chalk it up to just one more “golden handshake” following the principle set by the provincial and federal governments of lavishly rewarding those who feed at the public  trough.

Welcome to the big time, taxpayers of Sooke.
