Abbotsford city council is in a world of their own

It is all very well to have a professional hockey team in Abbotsford, but not at taxpayers’ expense.

It is all very well to have a professional hockey team in Abbotsford, but not at taxpayers’ expense.

If a proper study and survey had been undertaken before this contract was awarded, it would have been obvious that there is not sufficient support, financial or otherwise, for such a deal.

This money could have been better spent on amateur sport, and more and better activities for children, youth and seniors.

At present, seniors get a free pass into the two recreation centres at age 90. That is laughable. It should be 75 or at least 80.

The way this council wastes money they will probably have to put it up to 100, or even better, 110.

Taxes keep going up, and council continues to  keep their hands in our pockets to support their visions of grandeur.

They live in a world of their own.

A large number of families and taxpayers are struggling.

Residents of Abbotsford who are too lazy to vote are also at fault. Council, and residents who do not vote, should be ashamed.
