Re: Mayor makes it three in race, July 6
So we now read that our mayor intends to seek re-election, and she has already indicated in the Optimist quotes what her intentions are: she wants to move forward, not backwards.
I'm not quite sure how she could possibly go "backwards" (Albert Einstein spent much of his life trying to figure that one out!), but I presume that backwards to her means the status quo, which is in fact what many of us settled in Tsawwassen and Ladner for.
It seems that by "forward" she means development, development and more development, with great attractions for thousands of tourists, and she and her associates will not be happy until they have turned our town into a bigger version of Richmond.
Does she also wish to transform some of our parks and farmland into parking spaces for the thousands of vehicles that will flock into our new mega-malls, expanded port facilities, tax-free zones, highways for trucks and a Boundary Bay beach resort?
Of course she won't have to tolerate these inconveniences herself since she does not live in South Delta.
But we do, and we would have to suffer the consequences.
It is time to elect a mayor who will show respect for nature, rather than plunder it for short-term profit.
