Letter: Sportsplex should not be included in referendum

Sportsplex should not be included in referendum

Re: proposed referendum on regional recreation funding

Again, the CVRD is trying to make the property taxpayers pay for a private institution by including the Cowichan Sportsplex in the referendum.

The Cowichan Sportsplex is a private, non-profit, charity organization administered by Chesterfield Sports Society.

I do not mind giving money to a charity of my choosing but having the CVRD include the Cowichan Sportsplex in the referendum is unacceptable.

The CVRD has no right to give my tax money to any private organization.

Due to my age, I will never use any of the listed venues but I will not vote in the affirmative as long as the Cowichan Sportsplex is listed as a recipient.
