Many voters will appreciate that Penticton city council has directed staff to prepare a proposal to bring in recall legislation.
It is more than encouraging to hear that Coun. Martin proposed council move this forward. Mayor Jakubeit has seen the merit in having local elections held under the Elections Act, this would regulate mobile polls, number of polls per population as well as recall. Coun. Sayeed pointed out recall is difficult to achieve.
In a democracy should it not be an option?
I would, personally, like to thank mayor and council for a proposal that will change B93 so that it is unlikely to be rejected and for offering that proposal to SILGA.
