YARMOUTH, N.S. � A Yarmouth town councillor wants the municipality to reconsider its plan to donate to the tsunami relief effort in south Asia.
Murray Judge was the lone councillor opposed to donating the town's money. He says he believes in giving to charities but that taxpayers should decide for themselves where to put their cash.
'I've always felt that taxpayers pay us to provide government services, and if they wish to donate to any particular charities that's up to them. I've never been comfortable donating on behalf of the taxpayers.'"
