Letter to the Editor, Victoria Times Colonist
0714 - Finally, someone who stands up and says: “Stop the madness.” We need a Bill McKay here in Victoria.
Build it and
they will come. If we taxpayers, as McKay states, provide housing and all the other things the “campers” demand, there will be thousands coming to this island. It’s just plain stupid.
We have laws that apply to all of us, except the campers. They are trespassing on Nanaimo city property. Why, if they are breaking
a law, are they not removed by the authorities? Of course, moved to where is the issue. And when did the word “campers,” which used to have a bit of class to it, replace the word “homeless”?
Mayor McKay, thousands of
us support your stance. It has to stop somewhere, but you know, of course, you are going to lose this one, as we continue this giant swing to the left, which will go on until every form of government is broke.
If you are counting on the B.C. Supreme
Court for help, it does not get any more left than them. Then what?
