Letters: Chamber questioned

Restructuring of Sooke chamber of commerce raised legal questions

In reference to last week’s article: “2014:  A year of change for the chamber.”

I think we can all be appreciative of the regular Sooke Region Chamber of Commerce updates on Michael Nyikes structured thinking and examples of how we all can benefit from him in the community.  Some may hope this will end with the outcome of the November 2014 municipal elections.

In the next update, I would like Mr. Nyikes to explain how the 2013 Sooke chamber restructuring was done within the regulations of the Federal Board of Trade that govern it.  If it was not restructured within the governing regulations, I would like it explained how the Chamber received tax payer funding from the Sooke municipal finance committee.
