Twinning wastes taxes

Dear Editor: I wholeheartedly agree with Coun. Rod Clark's stand on the City of North Vancouver's twinning relationships with Chiba in Japan and Huizhou in China and his attempts to save my tax dollars.

Dear Editor:

I wholeheartedly agree with Coun. Rod Clark's stand on the City of North Vancouver's twinning relationships with Chiba in Japan and Huizhou in China and his attempts to save my tax dollars.

Why on earth is the city involved in doing the provincial government's job of looking for business?

How did council have the right to make this 'twinning' arrangement without consent of we the tax payers in the first place? Just because it was provincially funded ($43,000) doesn't mean it hasn't cost us all a lot more for such grand tours by the hierarchy of politicians in our community.

If it means a costly referendum to get rid of such extravagance for unproven benefits to us, I say let's have a referendum and stop such frivolous spending of our tax dollars.
