Just received an email from one of my readers who shared with me the reply he received from Municipal Affairs Minister Doug Griffiths regarding his written complaint to him. I still have not received mine but I imagine it will be the same identical form letter reply my friend (who wishes to remain anonymous) here received.
The following is an excerpt from that letter. To read the letter in its entirety go here.
... I respect the work that the Crowsnest Pass council and administration has done in bringing forward the Community Strategic Action Plan 2012 - 2014, and the work they are doing in the review of the Fire Services Master Plan. I will continue to support their efforts to carry out their legislated responsibilities.
The Crowsnest Ratepayers Association plans on delivering their recently completed petition to the Minister tomorrow. Based on the reply received above it looks like they have already gotten their answer, even before they have had a chance to hand-deliver their petition? :-(
Not looking good! It seems the residents of this community are in for a long hard road and uphill battle ahead.
In politics, absurdity is not a handicap.
