Who owns Griffith Neighbourhood Advisory Corporation?

Editor: I have a question. Many people in Brookswood/Fernridge are all up in arms about this new development plan. It has been privately funded by 10 property owners, who are shareholders of the Griffith Neighbourhood Advisory Corporation, to the tune of half a million dollars.

My very simple question is, who are these 10 people? Is it not wrong for these people to lay hidden behind the anonymity of a company, while they as individuals have possibly even funded the campaigns of those in office?

If they  made campaign contributions to the council, what did they get in return? Were Brookswood and Fernridge sold before this bylaw was even proposed?

Unveil yourselves GNAC. Stand up to the community. If you truly believe in this plan, then you should be proud of it and want your actual names on it.

Why all the secrecy?

Ann-Michelle DeReus,
