‘Corporation’ a fitting name for Delta

Regarding the application heading for approval by Delta for a 37-storey highrise at Scott Road and 80 Ave.

The Corporation of Delta’s mayor and council have unanimously voted in favour of the profit motive and against the interests of its citizens who spoke out overwhelmingly against this monstrosity. It is very fitting that the word “Corporation” is part of the municipality’s name, as it walks hand in hand with its business partners while it steps all over the little people.

Our bylaws and so-called North Delta Area Plan are no match for the shredder at city hall. This result (initial approval of the application) isn’t what we expected from our elected representatives, who were given the task of being responsible administrators. They lack the will to represent the ordinary folk of Delta, therefore they are not deserving of being our administrators.

What they really deserve is a healthy dose of civil disobedience. When the next election comes around, they won’t get my vote. Not any of them.

 

Jason Lewko, Delta
