Doreen Mueller on Johnson Street Bridge referendum: ‘Please participate during the referendum and again during the 2011 municipal election campaign’

VICTORIA PUBLIC WELL-INFORMED ON JOHNSON STREET BRIDGE

 

I have been a canvasser for the alternative approval process.

I just returned my last batch of signed elector response forms to johnsonstreetbridge.org on Monday [January 4, 2010].

Thank you organizers and volunteers, ex-Councillors, Councillor Geoff Young and all of the vigilant and informed citizens who encouraged all volunteer canvassers to continue to enjoy our civic duty throughout Victoria’s seasonal cool, rain and sunshine days.

You have restored my faith in democracy.

I do not believe the costly alternative approval process was necessary, nor was Councillor Pam Madoff‘s reported remark that “there is no control over what voters are being told in exchange for their signature.”

I found my fellow canvassers and the public well informed and rarely was an explanation required.

I sincerely hope that Mayor Dean Fortin and Council in future will extend the same respect to the public that they request from the public during Council meetings.

Thank you all again and please participate during the referendum and again during the 2011 municipal election campaign.
