Stand up to the bullies

Obviously you aren’t aware of the dedication and commitment she has made for our area over the years

I am writing in response to the malicious letter written by Mark Treacy and his attack on our (elected) regional district director Brenda Leigh (July 19).

I don’t know who you are or what your personal agenda is but obviously you aren’t aware of the dedication and commitment she has made for our area over the years.

Suggesting she has never spoken up on our behalf is absolutely false. She has been a strong voice in trying to keep our area affordable. She has spoken out against privatizing our hospital. I’m not aware of Campbell River city council speaking out against this.

In my opinion she is being bullied by the city regarding water and sewer for our area and I trust that she is doing her very best to handle the situation. I do not want to be part of the city and know I am not alone. We chose to live in a rural area and we knew that we had to have and maintain septic systems when we moved here. I felt the need to write this as I felt Mark Treacy’s letter to the paper was threatening and very malicious. Brenda Leigh, thank you for all your hard work over the years and please don’t resign…we need you to stand up to the bullies for us.
