Victoria asks Saanich for money

On March 8, 2010 a Victoria counselor attended a Saanich meeting to ask for money to help pay for the operation of Our Place, a Victoria facility which helps street people. The basis of the request was that the facility helps people from the entire region and Saanich, being a large part of the region should help out.

The money has already been fronted by Victoria.

This is another waste of time for elected officials having to go to other cities to obtain funding which logically should have been part of the region, as a city, budget.

Operations such as Our Place are clearly regional and it should not be necessary to send envoys out to ask for money. One city, one counsel could have resolved this quickly and efficiently.
