This is breaking news, I should add. There will be more coverage before too long.

 

The special in-camera meeting has now been posted to the municipality's website but it has no information in regards to the nature of the meeting.

Thank you Mike and to add this is now 7 CAO's since 2011

Yes, that is correct!

 

Something very bizarre is going on in that municipality and CAO's are flying off the shelves. Note that Brent Blackhall is the acting CAO.

There have been some serious ongoing problems with the Sooke council more or less since the start.

Kenneth Robar, the first candidate who had thrown his hat into the Sooke by-election ring, has gone missing. He disappeared in the 16th after heading to the town's rec centre on Phillips Road, according to the president of the Sooke Shelter Society.

 

Nine other candidates have added their names as by-election hopefuls.

“You’re telling me,” Councillor Tony St-Pierre said, “that I have to take a pig that I’m going to slaughter and drag it out into the middle of a field to do that?”

 

Councillor Megan McMath, in turn, said she often goes out and shoots her crossbow in her yard and things turn out fine.

The actual quote is "Coun. Megan McMath pointed out that she shoots a crossbow on her property and does so safely." Your editorializing makes it sound like she lives in a townhouse and shoots it towards her neighbours house.

There are a lot of rural and farm properties in Sooke/East Sooke where you could safely discharge a firearm or bow without your neighbours even hearing it.

I actually did not editorialize anything, what I posted was a direct copy and paste from the article in question.  Black Press has since changed the article and I note Black Press has not made record of the change as any professional publication would.  The point you make regarding rural/farm properties is not lost on anyone here.  Relax.

Oh you’d hear it from a long distance away.

That being said I hear reports of gun shots on the scanner from the Sooke area with some frequency, and police don’t take them lightly (it’s usually someone believing they are in the “wilderness” and practicing their aim or hunting).
