LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Discontent City situation is dragging on and on

It’s on and on and court cases seem to be going nowhere, says letter writer

To the editor,

Re: Fire safety enforcement order denied, Aug. 13.

Months have gone by, people are disgusted, some don’t care, it’s on and on and court cases seem to be going nowhere.

The judge himself places a fire safety order instead of granting a removal injunction, only to then not enforce it? Why is this still going on? They are breaking the law and nothing is being done. What a message this is sending.

I hope the province divides the overall bill tally to every member of council as well as the tent city occupants and supporters. They are all guilty of destroying this city’s economy and safety.
