Make watershed empire building an election issue

Re: “Watershed just needs government to do its job”, (Citizen, Nov. 15)

I would like to thank Mr. Kuhn (Director Area I, CVRD) for the outstanding job he did of clearly describing the complexities involved at the Cowichan watershed. It is sad that the environment manager at the CVRD described what Mr. Kuhn did so succinctly as “tricky pieces”.

It is important to note that Mr. Kuhn is telling us, the taxpayers at the CVRD, that the “tricky pieces” are not in the jurisdiction of the CVRD but that the CVRD has made it a mission to build a new tax heavy bureaucracy that has no jurisdiction to do anything except tax us. It is sad that the other directors, unlike Director Kuhn, at the CVRD, are taking us down this rat hole.

Elections are coming in October 2018. Make this an election issue and turf the bureaucratic empire builders at the CVRD.
