I read with interest this comment by Mayor George Peary in the article in last Thursday’s newspaper entitled, “WTE fight isn’t over.”
Peary said that the ‘accusatory approach’ won’t help the FVRD achieve its goals, and could have a negative impact on the region’s economy.”
And, “I do not advocate an approach which calls for protests and speaks negatively of our provincial politicians.”
Mayor Peary is entitled to his opinion, but I see this as muzzling Patricia Ross and others who disagree with the waste-to-energy plan proposed by Metro Vancouver.
I am in favour of this plan to burn garbage. I do not think we should be constantly filling up a landfill in Cache Creek with our garbage.
However, I also do not think Mayor Peary’s stance in this toward Patricia Ross and others who oppose it is correct, and I will not vote for him in the next election.
Remember, it was strong opposition from leaders like Patricia Ross and Randy White that helped defeat the SE2 proposal a few years ago.
