Editor: If you won’t abide by the answer, don’t ask the question.
Most of your readers should be aware that our city commissioned a survey to determine public support of council’s desire to enact a tree cutting bylaw. A key question in the survey asked if the responder would agree with spending tax dollars on this issue, and less than 45 per cent said yes.
Yet our council continues to review recommendations that will clearly cost millions.
Regardless of where you stand on the bylaw issue, ask yourself if you really want a council that will solicit public input and then clearly ignore it because they didn’t get the answer they wanted.
No matter what they may say, council does not have a public mandate to proceed down the path they are going.
