Nanaimo’s city council should feel ashamed

I find it totally inexcusable that a city council would reach a level of conduct so low as to require the services of a facilitator.

To the Editor,

Being a British Columbian, former mayor and longtime citizen, property owner and business person in Nanaimo, I find it reprehensible and totally inexcusable that a democratically elected mayor and city council would reach a level of conduct and conflict so low as to require the services of an independent facilitator to resolve their differences. You don’t require a facilitator, you require a hard knock on the head and a firm kick in the butt, each and every one of you. May such be a blunt reminder as to why you were elected in the first place, to determinedly focus and responsibly serve in the best social and fiscal interests of the citizens and the community as a whole. Petty politics and personal prejudices have no room in the chambers of civic governance, planning, decision and execution.
