View Royal Votes on Saturday to borrow $5.49 million for a new Firehall - Please Vote Yes

I have heard very little talk about the referendum going on in View Royal.   There is a vote this coming Saturday to borrow the money to build a new fire hall.  I am worried that very few people will vote and that the borrowing referendum might be defeated.

View Royal wants to borrow $5.49 million to build a new firehall but has had to take it to a referendum because of the very successful counter petition.

Voting will on Saturday November 24th from 8 am to 8 pm

There are two voting locations:
  • View Royal Elementary - 218 Helmcken Road
  • Eagle View Elementary - 97 Talcott Road
To be able to vote you have to be over age 18, a Canadian, lived in BC for at least six months and in View Royal since October 24th.   This means UVic and Camosun students living in illegal secondary suites are allowed to vote.

You have to have at least some ID with your address on it.

I personally think it is vital to this region to have a decent firehall in View Royal because our primary hospital depends on it.   In the event of a major emergency we have to know that the View Royal Fire Department can be there for all of us.

Please go and vote for the fire hall on Saturday.
