This council seems to court controversy time and again

Editor: What has gone wrong with Langley? I’ve lived here 61 years and I’ve never seen so much animosity as there is now.

Langley used to be a relatively peaceful place, but the way this municipal council, minus David Davis, has encouraged neighbours to turn in their neighbours for trailer parking, or water use in the summer for the bylaw officers to enforce, is over the top.

And now somewhere in Langley a bylaw officer tried to ticket someone for taking too long to park their car.

This is like a police state. I mean, what the hell?

Just last week there was someone upset over the water lines somewhere in Langley.

It seems there is some sort of controversy every couple of weeks that this council is responsible for.

Now you have the kerfuffle over the Coulter Berry building in Fort Langley where I’ve lived for the 61 years that I’ve been in Langley.

This has pit neighbour against neighbour again.

It was done something like the HST — only a minority wanted it and it was forced on the rest of us.

I do hope the judge stops this and puts the brakes on this council’s forceful ways. Mayor Froese said he doesn’t remember any controversy or protest.

Well, Jack, if your memory is that bad, maybe you should consider stepping down while you still remember how.

This council sure missed the governing lesson on how to create peace and harmony.

Nobody could do a worse job.
