Integrity B.C. weighs in on Nanaimo council
No one could be blamed for wanting to scream go to your rooms at some local council meetings across B.C.
That’s according to Integrity B.C. that notes seven of eight Nanaimo city councillors want their mayor, Bill McKay, to quit. Last month, Grand Forks council went to court to force a councillor out. Greenwood residents also tried to remove a disruptive councillor out last year without success.
Dermod Travis, Executive Director of Integrity B.C. says courts should be the last resort for citizens or councils wanting to overturn election results because of bad behaviour especially considering the provincial minister has the power to put a stop it….
Travis says part of the problem with some council’s is transparency.
He says when most communities in B.C. have more in-camera meetings than the City of Toronto, there’s a problem.
