Letters to the Editor

QB development naysayers

‘Let the games begin’ was my immediate thought on seeing Neil Horner’s letter to the editor in the July 1 edition of The NEWS.

I don’t know if he was trying to follow in his late father’s footsteps as a prolific writer for the naysayers in Qualicum Beach, or if his well-known left-leaning tendencies were showing now that the elections are coming closer.

Maybe before he wrote he should have had a peek at the editorial for the day on the gradual demise of most everything in Qualicum Beach.

Horner writes about Coun. Dave Willie and his pals at Pheasant Glen. I would be more worried about the new ‘Gang of Four’ possibility after the election — if Teunis Westbroek/Scott Tanner/Barry Avis/Neil Horner get in, the downward skid would really accelerate with the no-to-everything gang in control. Citizens of Qualicum Beach: beware.

Mine is truly an outside perspective of no special interest, other than seeing the town get back on its feet and be a bright, bubbling place that all the people can enjoy.

I am not a citizen of Qualicum Beach or a member at Pheasant Glen, but I have golfed there and I also shop and use many of the facilities in the town of Qualicum Beach.
