RCMP needs to investigate

A $12.9 million parking garage costs $34 million. Mayor and council are all claiming they didn’t know. Don’t you think it’s time to get the RCMP involved to find out where the money went? It is probably the only way to find out.

A $12.9 million parking garage costs $34 million. Mayor and council are all claiming they didn’t know. Don’t you think it’s time to get the RCMP involved to find out where the money went? It is probably the only way to find out.

I wonder if the meeting city council had to decide to plead innocence and no knowledge of where your $20 million went was based on political or legal reasons. I also wonder how many would swear under oath they had no knowledge of where the $20 million went. There is obviously something that council does not want to tell you about the money.  

But what they are telling the taxpayers is they are not to be trusted and no elected official in Prince George has knowledge or control over how the city spends taxpayer money and that the bills were paid without looking at them.  

Is that what’s happening in regards to the new pool, too? That is a very scary place for the taxpayers and will lead to reduced services and programs, increased user fees and most definitely higher taxes. 

Does anyone care? I’m a renter so I’m not too concerned with property taxes but if you pay them I would be because you are the ones responsible for paying off the loan. I wonder what the monthly fees are on a $20 million loan and I wonder if they had to borrow the money to bribe you into thinking they are good people with a 0 per cent tax increase. 

You will also pay for that old political trick. 

The more money city council borrows, the more money it needs from the taxpayers, which means higher taxes. That’s logical and when mayor and council deny any knowledge of how they lost $20 million, don’t you think it time the RCMP got involved?
