Councillor’s issue flip-flop

Dear Editor:

The silence from individual city councillors on the Skaha Lake Park issue is deafening.

Let me help draw them out. Max Picton, during the push to eliminate paper city bills, do you recall your reasoning? For the environment. “It’s the right thing to do for the environment,” you harped.

Do you recall saying it, it wasn’t that long ago (weeks, maybe months). I can’t be the only one to recall your tree-hugging, baby seal-saving attitude.

So you feel mailing out City bills is unacceptable to the environment, but you are OK with flattening a couple dozen trees and paving/eliminating part of a park? Interesting flip flop.

What happened to your pro-environmental attitude? Apparently it only surfaces when it’s convenient.
