I am writing as a Cortes resident to urge you to reverse your decision regarding the location of the meeting with the Klahoose First Nation. Your decision to go against precedence as well as the position and advice of Cortes Regional Director Noba Anderson is cowardly, devious and reeks of racism. The regional district represents area inhabitants, not off-island boaters who have been freely fouling the waters of Klahoose for decades, or area yacht clubs possessive of 'their' territory. Take the opportunity to do the honourable thing while you can.
