LETTER: RDKB overstepping bounds

I congratulate you for bringing attention how the RDKB apparently live on tax dollars that come out of pockets of the working public.

Re: RDKB to move Demski trailers (the Dec. 14 issue of the Grand Forks Gazette)

I congratulate you for bringing to the attention of the public how the Regional District of Kootenay Boundary (RDKB), plus a long list of other civil servants, that apparently live on tax dollars that come out of the pockets of the working public.

I am referring to the article concerning Mr. Demski’s trailers and this mob of civil servants giving themselves (the ability) to invade his property and remove the homes that he has provided for others.

I would like some answers as to who gives this mob the authority to do this act and to have others take part in this, including the RCMP and some so-called judge, is appalling to me.

In my opinion, those that take part in this act are all criminals living on stolen loot called taxes.

To think that wars were fought for our freedom and many lives were lost for this cause and in the words of Flanders Field “if we break faith with those that died they will not sleep,” and I am sure that many will be turning over in their grave is they were to see what is taking place today in Canada
