Courtenay Mayor wants the Common Sense issue to fade away
Has Common Sense died?
If it hasn't, Courtenay Mayor Larry Jangula hopes it will soon. . . or at the very least His Worship is hoping the Common Sense issue will soon fade away.
The mayor spoke about his desire to see this topic disappear, which comes in the wake of three Courtenay councillors receiving an anonymous letter regarding their interest in the political lobby group Common Sense.
"Quite frankly, I would like this matter to be dealt with and put away. We have a lot of issues to deal with at the City of Courtenay and this is becoming a distraction."
It's a difficult distraction to ignore admitted the Mayor.
"Basically this is a cowardly thing to do. I've looked at these letters and if I received these letters, I'd be concerned as well. However, as an ex-policeman I don't feel these are threats."
As for council, the mayor said this will not affect how the city conducts its business.
"We're doing business as normal. We're not going to change anything. I hope this doesn't escalate. . .but we will do business just like we have always done."
The next Courtenay council meeting is Monday, Jan. 9.
