LETTER: Pitt Meadows does not need new RCMP detachment

Local resident says the price tag is too much

Dear Editor,

Re: [Detachment the ‘right call’, The News, June 11]

With reference to Mayor Dingwall’s comments in the June 11 edition regarding a new RCMP building, I feel there are misleading observations from him regarding the ball diamonds, parking and art gallery but there is a bigger concern.

I remember the mayor and current council advocating a new firehall at a cost of $12.8 million, but I don’t ever recall them proposing to spend $18.3 million plus for a new RCMP building.

We do not need to detach from Maple Ridge. This insanity should be put on hold and made an election issue for Pitt Meadows in just over a year. It should be added as a referendum vote on the next election.

It’s just too much money.

Brian Moore, Pitt Meadows
