Alberni council missed opportunity

They had their chance, one reader said.

To the Editor,

At a city council meeting in late July I submitted a suggestion that four referendum questions be added to the November municipal ballot. The questions proposed seeking public input on proposals for a second Roger Street crossing, the Echo Pool options and the city becoming a coal port.

Mayor and council saw no merit in my proposal and rejected it. I believe they are missing an opportunity to connect with their constituents.

Does council want to promote greater involvement or preserve the status quo?

Bill Randles,

Port Alberni
