One “reason” put forward for Abbotsford council agreeing to the “Fraser Valley Pride” flag-raising is: “We don’t have a policy” on flag-raising.

Well, I think that is a remarkable and very culpable oversight on the part of our council. An amazing lack of foresight in this current culture.

But why should that oversight mean they must agree to any particular flag-raising proposal?

Consider: council doesn’t have a policy on crosswalk painting either. Yet they managed to find a way to not approve that part of the request! (At least not yet.)

Abbotsford councillors appear to be more concerned for political correctness and avoiding media flak than they are for doing what is right for this community.
