Contradictory messages coming from council

Letter writers fully support initiatives to make Mission healthier

Editor, The Record:

We’re wondering if the mayor and council are aware of the ridiculous and contradictory message they are sending the community they serve by, on one hand, striving to increase the number of fast food drive thrus while on the other, patting themselves on the back for apparently promoting a healthier Mission as the Fraser Valley’s walking capital.

We certainly support the mayor and council’s efforts in making the District of Mission healthier and greener by expanding trails and forest access.

However, we seriously question Mayor Ted Adlem’s own commitment to such initiatives by being such a vocal opponent of the repealing the drive thru ban bylaw. We will have 11 drive thru restaurants, already too many in our opinion.
