The Mayor of Quesnel is calling out the President of the North Central Local Government Association for her letter to BC’s Lieutenant Governor calling the alliance between the NDP and the Green Party unconstitutional.
Bob Simpson says Shaely Wilbur not only overstepped her bounds, but he calls her argument nonsense…
“There are no constitutional issues with what’s going on, there are no backroom deals that aren’t being made transparent. The NDP and the Greens have made their agreement transparent.”
Simpson also calls the move purely political…
“Because I can guarantee you that the Pres of the NCLGA, this particular person and people involved in it, would never have written this same kind of letter if the agreement had been between the Liberals and the Greens.”
Asked if he was being political, Simpson insists that he would have the same concerns if the letter were protesting a Liberal-Green alliance.
Simpson says the President doesn’t have the right to represent individual communities and certainly not without any consultation whatsoever.
He plans to take the issue to Council tomorrow night asking that Wilbur withdraws the letter.
