Businesses deserve vote
Opinion in the Sooke Mirror October 1, 2003
The best laid plans of mice and men ... In one of last week's editorials, "Those paying most can't vote," it was stated "Sooke's governing body has taken away from the people who will be paying the most for sewers." The intent behind this statement was to point out that an individual business is likely to pay more for the sewer system than a homeowner and businesses which are owned by corporations do not have a vote in the referendum. Residential property owners will be paying for the system as well, but they have a vote. Some business owners who have served this community for years have had their votes taken away.
