I am responding to a Feb. 14 article by Eric Mackenzie “Court Declares Highline Road a Highway.”
In a statement by Area C Director Susie Gimse, she states: “It is great to have the issue resolved in terms of who’s responsible for the road.”
Also there was “no question” that any improvements to the Highline road would be a benefit to her constituents.
I find it odd that Ms. Gimse would still call this road Highline road when in 2004 the Squamish-Lillooet Regional District registered this road as Douglas Trail Road and Judge Russell declared it the Douglas Trail Road.
I am incensed that Ms. Gimse now states that any improvements would be beneficial to her constituents, when on April 10, 2012, at the SLRD Electoral Area Directors Meeting the recommended motion in relation to the legal proceeding was “That the board continue to monitor the legal proceedings as a bystander and seek reinstatement of road maintenance funding from the Ministry of Transportation.”
Where was Area C Director Susie Gimse or Area B Director Mickey Macri when numerous responses in support, including from the Village of Pemberton, were filed with the Supreme Court of B.C.
She should have stayed a bystander, instead of patting her self on the shoulder now, for some thing she had absolutely no part in.
