Freedom of expression is a cornerstone of a functioning democracy. Freedom of expression promotes certain societal values, as noted by Professor Emerson in 1963: "Maintenance of a system of free expression is necessary (1) as assuring individual self-fulfillment, (2) as a means of attaining the truth, (3) as a method of securing participation by the members of the society in social, including political, decision-making, and (4) as maintaining the balance between stability and change in society." Our constitutional commitment to free speech is predicated on the belief that a free society cannot function with coercive legal censorship in the hands of persons supporting one ideology who are motivated to use the power of the censor to suppress opposing viewpoints.

http://www.uottawa.ca/constitutional-law/expression.html

Canadian Charter of Rights
2. Everyone has the following fundamental freedoms:
a) freedom of conscience and religion;
b) freedom of thought, belief, opinion and expression, including freedom of the press and other media of communication;
c) freedom of peaceful assembly; and
d) freedom of association.

Several of our neighbors had Jim Edgson signs on their properties, so you are wrong. We had a sign on our front yard. Just accept the democratic outcome whether it pleases you or not. As you say, Democracy Rules!  Maybe you did see Jim Edgson's signs at Westshore Estates.  We don't frequent Westshore Estates so maybe that is why we didn't see any of Jim Edgson's signs in people's yard.  Honestly we did not see one sign of Jim Edgson's in anyone's yard.  We did see two large signs on the road allowance ... one at the S-curves near Ewings Landing and another near the entrance to LaCasa.  We did see lots of Dave Robertson's signs in many of Jim Edgson's neighbor's yards at Killiney Beach.  If you count the votes just at the Killiney Beach voting station in the area where Jim Edgson resides, Dave Robertson would have won.

Darren Said: We heard that OkanaganLakeBC was defacing election signs during the election. If that is true that is both juvenile and a criminal offense I think. -------------------------------------- Maybe someone did deface election signs but we didn't notice any election signs defaced. We did notice that Dave Robertson had election signs in people's yards whereas we saw Jim Edgson's election signs on the road allowances where people are more apt to deface signs. Read this: Edgson acknowledges a lack of support among North Westside voters .... read it here. Graphics were designed if that is what you are talking about, but that is not defacing election signs.... Just Say No

Some of us neighbours have got together for breakfast this morning and are checking out this web site we heard was ;printing a lot malicious stuff on the internet. We are all sitting here at the computer shaking our heads (some are laughing too at some of the things you are writing, wow this is something else!). Good thing the site is difficult to navigate and looks very amatuer or it may be very damaging to our community, and to all of us. This is the reason most people do not run for election. They are afraid of this sort of accusations and rumors about their personal lives and family by ill informed people with some kind of vendetta. Anyone running for election is courageous. The pay for a director is nowhere near what it should be, with all the time spent, especially dealing with this sort of thing. The stress must be just awful. And the fire chief? You can call him at home! I have never heard of being able to call a fire chief at his residence. We should all feel lucky to have that kind of service and appreciate the time and effort these people put in. This is a weird web site. Brutal man!

This is absolutely disgusting what you are writing on this web site. There are proper forums for debate and inquiry with government, municipalities and neighbours. There is a lot of scary anger on this web site directed against people who are elected to serve us or are employed to provide us with important services. I assume when you write okanaganlakebc.ca you really mean the person running this site? This is way over the top. I'd be wanting to sue too, how many lives are being affected by printing personal assaults on these people? Calling them names like "arse" and worse, attacking their families when no one knows both sides of a story and its none of anyones business anyway what is in their family life. How can you spend so much time doing this? It is very mean. I'm glad I don't know you because I would be very afraid of you as a neighbor. This is not normal.

Is this some kind of smear campaign against our director? This is very bad to print such things, my goodness, who is behind this website and posted such stuff? I cant believe this is allowed, until I heard from someone this is happening and checked it out for myself. Even personal attacks and name calling. I am ashamed this goes on in our community. Makes me sick. I hope this gets shut down. Bad bad bad.

We (my family) are pleased that Jim Edgson was elected... he has been most courteous in visiting us and answering all of our questions. We are happy to have someone this knowledgeable and experienced as well as local to represent us at the RDCO. Thanks Jim!

Went for a drive up Winchester supposedly where Jim Edgson resides and saw many of Jims neighbours on Winchester have signs up in their yards to vote for Dave Robertson. I guess if anyone knows who to vote for it would be his neighbours!

You know that comment below that someone typed (THE NWCA DO NOT LEGALLY or LEGITIMATELY REPRESENT THE INTEREST OF THE NORTH WESTSIDE AREA, and that they weren't elected) its the best comment I have seen yet .. and it is so very true! The community really does need vote boxes so busy people can have a say too! They don't need a non elected lobby group to represent them. Busy residents don't have time to attend meetings and maybe they don't even need a hall. Busy people would most likely want their say and would have time to check off a quick vote as they drive by the mailbox!! Check out the vote box concept here on this website and see what you think. http://www.okanaganlakebc.ca/community/personal/westside_road/vote_boxes.htm

It's interesting to note that the people that claim themselves to be so devoutly religious in public are usually the most dishonest. They hide with their agenda behind their bible and turn around and say "Trust me because I am a good Christian!" HAHA!! We all didn't fall off the turnip wagon yesterday. Remember, we live in a nation where church and state are supposed to remain separated or, did Jim Edgson and Wayne Carson manage to change the Charter of Rights and Freedoms when we weren't looking?!! Being the little demagogues that they are... Quite frankly it loathes me to no end that the general public can be so easily snookered by such transparent people as these two, and if the best we can do for a fire chief is Wayne Carson, perhaps we don't even need a fire dept. It would be easier to just dig a hole, throw our tax dollars in it and burn it. We'd probably get better results. Oh and did I mention to throw the money in a hole and burn it?!! That sounds like our trench burner boondoggle!

By opposing this funding for the tax increase, democracy will prevail. Obviously the strongest of messages has been sent to the NWCA that they DO NOT LEGALLY or LEGITIMATELY REPRESENT THE INTEREST OF THE NORTH WESTSIDE AREA. They are a LOBBY GROUP with their own agenda, they have not been elected by the public, they have not been chosen to represent the general electorate's needs, and quite frankly, this message has to sink into their thick skulls sooner or later. I think Harry and his crew are going to come to this sad realization that the tax payers and electorate are no longer going to be bullied by this group and are willing to fight to the bitter end to put the NWCA into its place, a LOBBY GROUP, period.

From my personal experience I believe that J. E. has his own agenda and that he uses his connections to further his own personal issues, rather than the good of the whole community under the pretense of being helpful and caring for the environment. Also, there seems to be a rumor going around that our taxes will go up considerably if Jim Edgson is elected because his agenda includes many new projects for a community that has a population base too small to support it. New firehall, new firetruck, fireboat, new community hall, arena, swimming pool, tennis court and more?? Who will pay for all this and who will maintain it afterwards and how many will really use it. A little empire building perhaps!
