I truly expected more. The action of the Kitimat council on the plebiscite question at the council meeting of Monday, January 20th speaks of continued political inaction and incompetence. The circus show that ensued demonstrated that the council remains entrenched in politics and saving face rather than working towards the best interests of the community. A decision of council neutrality two years ago hamstrung this council into inaction during the entire JRP process with no interaction in the process in the interests of its citizens. Now after the JRP recommendation has been announced, council wants to ask what the public thinks about the recommendation with all its 209 conditions. Not a simple task. People in the know including, Enbridge are trying to figure it out. But Council – who I am sure must have read the document, want to know how its citizens think, so they can adjust their politics to possibly be Re-elected in the next municipal elections. Why else would they ask a convoluted question, about a recommendation and conditions they can do nothing about, after the fact.
