Oversized Berwick development unwelcome in Qualicum Beach

Thanks to councillors Skipsey and Avis for articulating much of QB’s opposition to the Berwick facility to be built downtown (The NEWS, May 4). We are grateful for the clarity of Coun. Skipsey’s statement “A building with this mass and five storeys in this location is not [in] keeping with the small-town character of our town.”

Like vanishing Vancouver, this town is certainly on the way out, very soon to be replaced by a city none of us wants.

Let us hope, when she is the next mayor that she will have the courage and determination to rescind the 2011 Building Bylaw which allows the height of QB buildings to be over two storeys high.
