Re: "C. Saanich councillor steps down," Nov. 27.
It is easy to get worked up when there are sensationalist headlines about a Central Saanich councillor working in the Cayman Islands, but I feel we should withhold critical comment until the facts are known.
I live in Central Saanich and have had contact with council here over the last two years. My impressions have been that we have a very hardworking council in Central Saanich, where all, including Terry Siklenka, have served our community conscientiously and with integrity, putting in a lot of time for little reward.
I have no idea what has happened, but in my book, Terry has put in many years as a good councillor for Central Saanich and he leaves with my thanks. If he has stumbled in some way, then let those who have never stumbled themselves put their righteous boot to him if they must, but I would offer my hand.
