The City of White Rock cites a confidentiality of financial details regarding the purchase of Epcor.

Why is it politicians seem to think they are entitled to spend taxpayers’ money entrusted to them but not be accountable for how they are spending it? Basic questions such as how much this was, how much has this deal cost and does this mean an increase in taxes or higher water bills should be answerable.

Keeping information from the public should never be an issue in any deal involving taxpayers’ money.
