Letter from BC Civil Liberties Assocition, “that you consider the actions of the Save the Skaha Park Society to have negated their right to be considered for participation in the select committee—is very problematic”

“In a democracy, it is vital that citizens feel able to express critical or dissenting views (through lawsuits or other means) without fear of being shut out of the democratic process in the future, or of reprisals of other kinds. In this regard, your comment—that you consider the actions of the Save the Skaha Park Society to have negated their right to be considered for participation in the select committee—is very problematic,” wrote Micheal Vonn, policy director of the BCCLA, in a letter addressed to Jakubeit and copied to the Skaha Park Society.
