New way of doing business — just threaten to sue

Well it really is a new day in North Cowichan. We are starting to look a little like our corrupt and two faced neighbours to the south.

It would appear than if an individual, group or corporation does not like the democratic process in this municipality, and they have deep pockets, just threaten to sue. Not just a small threat, but one that would dwarf any logical justification, and just aimed at intimidating the elected municipal council.

I thought bullying was becoming a real taboo in 2019; I guess not if you have lots of money. Is this the way our municipal business is going to be conducted in the future?
