Response from John Clark

We have our second response and it is from John Clark.

The only email address I could find for Mr. Clark was one at This would be his official Councilman’s email and likely inappropriate for him to respond. The response email received was from a hotmail account. Perhaps good to know Mr. Clark has a hotmail account and responds to emails complete with abbreviations and typo’s just like the rest of us.

The Mayoralty contender’s response was brief and to the point. He acknowledged that the questions were “hard.”

Mr. Clark points out that all business in West Vancouver is “limited to retail in whatever form.” He stated he would like the District’s CAO to be more involved in business development. He states “I would love to see "soft" activity which would enhance our tax base.” I have no idea what “soft” activity is. Maybe you do.

On the use of contract services, Mr. Clark points out that the District does contract our garbage disposal and paving, as well as, shared costs with the other north shore Districts on legal, fire/rescue and public works. He believes that the District needs to be “alert” to the opportunities to contract out more services.

Still no response received from Ms. Vaughan. I’ll give her another week then offer an opinion on the responses received.
