Acknowledging the minority


Re: Letter to the Editor “Democracy means respecting citizens’ votes” by Rick Fortier (Gazette, Oct. 28).

Democracy: It’s when elected leaders balance the needs of all their citizens, and not just the majority.

Democracy: It’s when the newly elected mayor and council respect the voice of 38.3% of their citizens and do build a structure the electorate has said ‘Yes’ to.

Ron Kube, St. Albert
