Kamloops Coun. Arjun Singh would be better off helping his fellow Kamloops citizens enjoy a quality of life within their means of livelihood, instead of self-aggrandizing on an issue that rightfully belongs to senior levels of government.

Let Singh rein in wayward taxes, inhibit ugly residential and commercial growth, expand transportation and contain crime, among many other issues that are the domain of city hall.

As we encourage people to shop local, our city council should govern locally.

Singh may stand tall as president of the Union of B.C. Municipalities, but Kamloops council remains composed of elected representatives who are minnows in a small city.

Mayor Ken Christian has aptly said, “If this (meaning implication of Singh’s notice of motion, I presume) is a choice between green and growth, I’m going to go with growth.”

So will I.
