The asphalt at Ship Point is likely pretty safe too.

Ignoring the oddity of the old town quote, I see no reasons whatsoever for Saanich to want to amalgamate with Victoria. There does not seem to be any upside to that for Saanich.

Witnessing the increasingly woke-ish direction Saanich appears to be heading in since the last civic election, I'm not sure there's an upside for Victoria either if it were to amalgamate with its neighbour to the north.

A few years back Helps was asked about amalgamation with Saanich her reply was " It would be great we could do so much with the larger tax base" That says it all .

The City of Victoria and District of Saanich have taken the next step in their study of potential amalgamation.
 
A citizens assembly to study the potential municipal amalgamation was approved in 2018 following a referendum.
 
However, planning efforts were stalled during the COVID-19 pandemic.
 
Earlier this year, the two municipalities said the study was back on the table, with a 48-person citizens’ assembly to research the potential benefits and drawbacks of amalgamation.

I cannot imagine why Saanich would think amalgamation would be a benefit?

They’ve amalgamated with three other planets already, apparently.

Have you seen the Together Victoria wannabes on Saanich Council?
