LETTER: Memorial wall and electric cars costly

Re: Council needs to live within its means (Letters, Feb. 5)

Kudos to Jay Ryan for his excellent letter on the municipal budget. I couldn’t agree more.

To spend our tax dollars for a memorial wall at Whiffin Spit for $50,000 and $212,000 on electric charging stations for vehicles is absolutely unreal. If you can’t charge your vehicle at home, we should put in a charging station that will be paid for by the users. If I need gas for my car, I must buy it and so should electric vehicle owners purchase their electricity. Seems to me B.C. Hydro should bear the initial cost of a charging station and make it a user-pay system.
