Notice from Anita Bull, of Saanich Citizens for a Responsible EDPA:
Thank you to all of you that attended Town Hall #2. I believe it was a success with lots of conversation about moving forward with a solution.
We were told 500 chairs were set up for the meeting. Almost all the chairs were filled for the first half of the meeting. There were a number of speakers from a fairly new group called SAFE, Saanich Advocates For the Environment. Most of them spoke at the beginning and then left the meeting. While this group may believe they oppose the direction of Saanich Citizens for a Responsible EDPA Society(SCRES), when you listen to their speeches, there is a lot we can mutually agree upon. Ted Lea and his wife Lora presented our proposal for a Volunteer Stewardship Program. SCRES was well respected by Mayor and Council and seen as a partner in working together for a solution.
We expect Saanich will announce very soon, a Committee of the Whole meeting for the EDPA. We will advise as soon as we hear.
We have attached video of the Town Hall for you.
