Breaking news: Village of Lumby votes to go ahead with prison plans despite 56% opposition ** updated with video of the vote.
This just in from the council meeting :
Mayor Acton of Lumby and all council members except Tracy Williamson in favor of telling the province the community of Lumby wants the prison even though a 56 % majority of the community voted against it.
Here is the video of the vote. I find it remarkable that the council members who voted in favour find a 56% in favour vote within the village ” a strong and clear mandate” to continue. Clear and strongly divided is the only thing 6% says.
A big thank you to Spruce One for the video clip !
