Langley Township firefighters are never satisfied

Dear Editor,

It’s never enough. Does the Township have enough firefighters? Firefighters didn’t have enough to do, so they talked 911 into calling them for all calls.

Then having on-call firefighters wasn’t good enough. So at a great deal of the taxpayers’ expense, full-time firefighters were hired.

New fire halls were built, again at taxpayers’ expense.

They all have the very best equipment and cars and trucks and vans, at the taxpayers’ expense. Now they want more firefighters, at taxpayers’ expense.

We don’t need seven fire halls now that we have better equipment and full-time firefighters. Close one and give those the 20 men they most desperately needed, in their opinion, to meet industry standards.

Do something for the taxpayer for a change. These people obviously didn’t see the report that states Langley was the worst municipality in B.C. for wasting taxpayers’ money.

Wake up and smell the empty bank account!

Don Bassani, Langley
