Partnerships creating jobs

Re: the editorial ‘One slow process’ (The NEWS, Aug. 21).

I want to thank editor John Harding for the editorial, especially the realization that there is no fast track to job creation.

I do want to point out and ensure recognition is given to all of the stakeholder partners that make up Oceanside Initiatives as it is the partnership that has made our progress to date possible.

The group consists of the Regional District of Nanaimo, The Town of Qualicum Beach, The City of Parksville, The Qualicum Beach Chamber of Commerce, The Parksville Qualicum Beach Tourism Association, The Parksville Downtown Business Association, School District 69, Vancouver Island University and the Parksville & District Chamber of Commerce.

It is the strength of the partner organizations and the regional focus of the projects that will result in a strong and sustainable Oceanside economy.
