Colwood Coun. Cynthia Day was arrested Wednesday due to an ongoing dispute with the City over the boulevard in front of her house.
City crews showed up to the councillor's home on Charnley Place Wednesday morning to remove rock walls built by Day's husband Tim on the boulevard more than 20 years ago. The City claims, after conducting an engineer's report, that the walls are a safety and liability issue, however, the homeowners dispute that claim after filing a FOI request and receiving the report.
The issue has been an ongoing disagreement between the City and the couple, culminating Wednesday in the arrest of Day after she refused to move from the rock walls when the City came to take them down.
