I have not heard a single thing about anyone wanting to run in View Royal. In 2005 the council was elected by acclamation and this could be the case again.
View Royal is a local government without a place - there is no community that is View Royal and finding someone that identifies as being from View Royal is rare. Why would anyone run for office or vote if you do not have a sense of community?
This municipality serves no one's needs and should be broken up and added to Esquimalt, Colwood and Saanich. This would benefit everyone in the region and really improve the situation for the people living in that random set of boundaries that is View Royal.
