Qualicum Beach needs priorities
I have to laugh and cry at the same time when I see some constructive suggestions for controlling traffic and providing better safety for pedestrians provided by a consultant for Qualicum Beach in the Thursday edition of The NEWS.
The story indicated council was receptive to the consultant’s report but Mayor Teunis Westbroek may have expressed what others were thinking when he agreed the suggestions were certainly worthy of consideration but “the problem for us is how we are going to fund them.”
If QB was not in such a rush to play catch up with Parksville and blow $3 million on the questionable need for a brand new fire hall, the town would have lots of funds for the recommendations, and maybe upgrading our beautiful beach too.
Priorities folks, priorities.
