Letter: With his vaccine stance, can Coun. Walsh represent Kamloops elsewhere?

Editor:

Kamloops Coun. Denis Walsh told KTW he would not get a COVID-19 vaccine for personal reasons.

As a councillor of the city, I would expect him to lead by example and get vaccinated to encourage others to endure the poke of a tiny needle. It doesn’t hurt.

We were recently on holiday on Vancouver Island and every hotel and eating establishment had a person at the door, asking for proof of vaccination and checking driver’s licences as proof of  identity.

This happened at every place we visited and every time we returned to the hotel.

People without the vaccine cards or driver’s licences were denied entry and masks were mandatory.

With the current rules in place, I wonder how Walsh can attend meetings out of town on behalf of the city when he cannot fly and cannot enter hotels or restaurants.

He is getting paid every month by taxpayers, yet will not get the vaccine, so why should he continue getting paid?
