Resident challenges Armstrong-Spallumcheen parks and rec opening a fitness area

Upon reading your article in the newspaper Jan. 10, it has become more than apparent that the City of Armstrong, together with the Township of Spallumcheen, formulated its plan to open its fitness centre without public consultation or for that matter without the knowledge of Fitness2Life or Curves, located in downtown Armstrong.

The very fact that this decision was made in-house,  behind closed doors,  by those entrusted with taxpayers’ money is simply beyond belief and it would seem without accountability to this date.

It has always been my understanding that democracy is based on the majority, not the minority who seem to have direct influence on our mayors and council members.

The principles of good business ethics have simply gone out the window.
