Letters: Responding to Mrs. Lewers

Sooke councillor corrects statements made by letter writer

First and foremost, I would like to clarify that I am not a member of the land use committee, the councillors are Kevin Pearson, Herb Haldane and  Maja Tait.

Secondly, I understand your point of view however; I respectfully disagree.

I truly believe that we need experienced people on our district committees, for example if we were to create a committee with regards to farming, and or farmland, you would be the first person that I would want on that committee.

The land use committee is made up of people who are experienced, these people understand the zoning, the bylaws, and most importantly they have experience with our application process. The two public members are, comprised of : a planner, and a local builder.

 

In conclusion it’s extremely healthy to disagree and share our differences of opinions. After all great ideas often come from great debate.
