Ed Broadbent in Tom Mulcair’s book Strength of Conviction, wrote “… he (Mulcair) resigned his Cabinet post as Quebec’s environment minister for refusing to permit condo developments on Parkland.”
Parkland and public land can not be squandered by leasing it or selling it. Town council has a legal obligation to respect the rights of taxpayers of Penticton.
We hopefully do not live in an autocratic state. To allow any individual or group to trample on citizens rights no matter how insignificant it may seem is a measure of that groups respect for the rights of others and disregard for the democratic process.
