Politicians at odds
Seems a couple of our local politicians the Honourable DNV Mayor Richard Walton and BC MLA Jane Thornthwaite respectively have a difference of views on how much money has been spent in recent years on the local Highway. According to a front page story in reference to that in the July 5th North Shore News, Walton says, " has not had virtually a nickel put into it", but Thornthwaite in a letter to the North Shore News on Wednesday, July 15, 2015 claims that that she has pushed for improvements and that the total contribution ffom the Province on the local highway is $56.7 million. That's quite a disparity from "not virtually a nickel". One would expect a rebuttal letter from Mayor Walton in the days ahead.
