Letters to the Editor

A ward system would provide some new councillors

Editor: Re: “Long list of Township concerns,” (The Times, May 22). One desperate change we need is to move to a ward system, just like the federal and provincial elections.

The “at large” system we have now favours re-election of incumbents, as most residents do not know which way any  councillor voted on any particular policy. Under a ward system, Fort Langley, Willoughby, Brookswood/Fernridge and Aldergrove ridings would be getting new councillors in November for sure. This would fix most, if not all, of Ann-Michelle de Ruis’ concerns.

J. Beauman,
