Who is who in Qualicum Beach?

I read about the Clegg family being evicted by town officials in Qualicum Beach and noted the second heading of the article which said that they were a middle class family. This intrigued me.

My first thought was maybe they could live in the legally nonconforming building on the Dwyer’s property that the town decided to allow.

Then in turn that statement intrigued me. How does Qualicum Beach choose to overlook the law?

Is there a who’s who list or are these matters determined merely by social status?

Something in the article tells me that morals have little to do with their decisions. 

Perhaps councilors could release the who’s who list so that everyone in Qualicum Beach will know where they stand.
