Well, you did it.
North Saanich seems to be safe . . . at least for the next four years.
Turns out that what has since 2020 been frequently dismissed, often sneeringly, as
"a loud minority"
proved to be an overwhelming majority at the ballot box: The six candidates supported by SaveNorthSaanich
topped the next six candidates by some 66%,
while Mayor-elect Peter Jones garnered more votes
than his opponents combined. The candidates who we believe will protect this wonderful place
have a strong majority on council.
And a strong mandate, too.
The swearing-in ceremony is tomorrow, November 7, at 2:00 at Municipal Hall. (From the notification that went out, you may have wondered if the public is allowed to attend in person. But get this: not only is it allowed - we hear there's cake.)
As for SaveNorthSaanich, we're going to stick around to help make sure folks hear about news that's important to this precious municipality.
