An excellent post from Laila Yuile about Elections and Candidates making empty promises that they never plan to keep. In White Rock, we know this all too well as Mayor Baldwin has broken the majority of this election promises with this first year. He promised to preserve single family areas yet 5 towers are now planned for just such an area at Thrift and Oxford. Wayne promised more open local government and show more respect for the public, yet at last nights Council Meeting he called in the RCMP to remove a speaker who, during her comments at the Public Hearing on a proposed 12000 sq-ft monster home, stated her opinion about the project which the Mayor did not like. So much for respecting the public and our single family areas and maintaining White Rock’s unique character.
