To the Editor,
I find it unbelievable that people would run for public office who are intimidated by a sign saying ‘professional trough feeder’ or ‘stop the madness.’
Not only that, but being so intimidated it forced that person to call in the RCMP. If signs intimidated them that much, how can we expect that person to stand up for the taxpayers against 20 or 30 people wanting millions of tax dollars for their special interests? Or how will that person be able to stand tall when dealing with international companies or senior government or even our own city staff?
If the fear of intimidation is that great, the person should resign and allow someone who is not easily intimidated to take their place. Guiding the future of Nanaimo is too important to be left in the hands of a person or persons that admit that signs intimidated them so much they cannot do their job for which they were elected.
