I am totally in favor of spending tax dollars to keep our beautiful region from becoming an eyesore.
I don’t know what the percentage of age groups are against spending my tax dollars and yours as well.
We moved or have lived in this area for a numbers of years for a reason. The natural beauty that surrounds us no matter in which direction we look is amazing.
If you travel the world and see such sights you are overwhelmed, well we live in such a region.
People travel from halfway around the world to visit us and spend their tourists dollars which also helps in aiding the level of tax dollars needed to continue Parksville Qualicum Beach’s splendor.
Those that are against such spending, I wonder what they would like to have done with their tax contributions.
A few less visits to Starbucks or Tim Hortons and I’m sure that the savings from those visits would be more than enough of your share to keep our beaches and surrounding areas pristine.
Spend it and enjoy it, we ain’t taking any of it with us, so enjoy those places that we chose to call home.
Be proud to show off to our visitors and friends that don’t have the same natural environment that we sometimes take for granted.
