No Backbone On City Council

Council shows little backbone

In an uncharacteristic editorial, the Bulletin recently took a swipe at city council and their seemingly spineless response when given an ultimatum by senior government.

They cite the council's submissive response to many of these demands as doing a poor job advocating for Nanaimo citizens. The decision to build a $72 million water treatment plant, remove Colliery dams, not protecting parkland in Linley Valley and Pioneer Forest and doing basically nothing about the boat basin takeover are pointed to as examples of this council's lack of backbone.

They note that in addition to dollars there are social costs to the decision to remove the Colliery Park Lakes, changing the boat basin and developing Pioneer Park into another residential area.
