Dear Premier Campbell, Mr. de Jong and Mlle Cadieux:

 

RE: VICTORIA BYELECTION-REFERENDUM NOVEMBER 20, 2010

 

FORMAL CITIZENS’ COMPLAINT AGAINST THE CITY OF VICTORIA

 

We regret to inform you that we sadly must bring to the Provincial Government’s attention very grave abuses by the present local government of the City of Victoria with respect to its abusive manipulations of the citizens of Victoria during this voting event.

 

This FORMAL COMPLAINT is accompanied by a respectful request that the senior government intervene in the public interest of defending endangered democracy in Victoria and all of British Columbia.

 

We believe that if the Victoria Byelection-Referendum results are allowed to stand unobstructed by the Provincial government, that residential taxpayers across the province will then be put in extreme danger of being further similarly abused by stimulus-addicted non-accountable local governments with grandiose, frivolous, and often very expensive vanity projects, while other more pressing social problems of homelessness, and rampant drug addiciton are left unattended.

 

This is unacceptable to us, as are the results of the City of Victoria’s recent stolen byelection-referendum, where a Councillor was supposedly elected with only 7.08% of the eligilbe voters’ approval and a borrowing of $49,200,000 was supposedly endorsed by a wide margin when in reality only 15.67% of the eligible voters endorsed the socialist mayor’s plan.

 

We believe that this is a grave abuse of the democratic process that if left uncontested by our Provincial Government, will set a very dangerous precedent.

 

We therefor beg of you to intervene and start by nullifying the results of the Victoria Byelection-Referendum. 

 

We respectfully refer you to the following link where we elaborate our reasons for provincial intervention, and our suggested reforms.

 

We hope to hear from your offices at the very earliest instant.

 

Thank you very much for considering the sad state of our fragile democracy in Victoria, British Columbia

 

Very sincerely yours

The provincial government didn't support tearing down the old bridge.
