All councillors show leadership

As an engaged member of our community, I think that we benefit from having women on council.

To the Editor,

Re: Women must demonstrate leadership, Letters, Oct. 7.

This letter writer says that “neither of the women on our present council have distinguished themselves as qualified decision makers.” I wonder if this observation is influenced by the fact that Diana Johnstone and Diane Brennan stand on difference sides of issues from the writer.

I observe that all members of council need to demonstrate leadership. As an engaged member of our community, I think that we benefit from having women on council. I see Johnstone and Brennan as qualified decision makers who consistently make well-thought-out and measured decisions which support all members of our community.
