Our thanks to White Rock City Councilors Helen Fathers and David Chesney for Listening!

Helen Fathers and David Chesney are the only White Rock City Councillors who know that what is best for White Rock is also what is best for residents. And that means listening to residents, not just developers.

OUR VIEW: White Rock council was elected to listen – that includes question period - The Now

Mayor Baldwin and the White Rock Coalition Councillors are neglecting their fiduciary duty to the citizens of White Rock. Under the Local government Act, they are required to act in the best interest of the citizens, not themselves and not developers.
That includes public consultation in a public forum. Instead, the Mayor and the White Rock Coalition have closed question period. Residents try to get City Hall to listen to reason, but only developers with deep pockets get heard. Development is good, but we have to balance development with the valid concerns of residents. That requires listening to the people that live in White Rock.

We have four more years until the next election. So what can we do about the disgraceful way that City Hall is ignoring their responsibilities to listen to residents? They know that our only recourse is to take the City to court as the residents of Belaire have done. If you love this city and want fair representation, we will have to get organized, raise money, and take our own City to court. Stay tuned in the months to come.
