Letter: Mayor shows bias in Coulter Berry hearing

Dear Editor,

The mayor has clearly shown his bias at the ongoing Coulter Berry public hearing. The mayor stopped speakers from “making personal remarks,” however he repeatedly allowed remarks that were favourable to the developer.

I say to the mayor, “You can’t have it both ways.”

The entire process is a farce if you bring that kind of bias to the process. This hearing should not continue this way.

It is little wonder that the Township ends up defending itself in court. I am sure that my comments here would not be allowed at that hearing.

Since the entire process is probably being recorded, I suggest that all personal remarks, both good and bad, be struck from the public record.

I am not interested in knowing that the developer is some kind of saint, as some speakers seem to suggest. I am only interested in the actual development.

Wally Martin, Murrayville
