Re. "Hall of a change" (The Tri-City News, April 29).
I am disappointed with the decision by Port Moody city council last week to ignore the results of the referendum on a new fire hall.
To go through the effort and cost of a referendum, ask residents to come out and vote and then have the majority of council cave in because they didn't like the outcome because of a low voter turnout is an affront to those like my wife and me who made the effort to vote.
I don't recall there being any pre-conditions requiring a minimum turnout to be legitimate.
If the voters' decision is discarded out of hand so easily, maybe we'll think twice about voting in the future.
And with this being a civic election year, is this politically motivated?
