Community needs a gathering place

I do not recall that any members of our current council campaigning on issues with the Parksville Community Centre.

It is disconcerting that this council would overturn a previously approved contract to Dec. 31, 2020 considering the PCC gave the city 50% of their 2018 profit.

Council should consider any liabilities that may occur with regards to bookings that have been made into 2021. Council should also consider that it should not be arbitrarily make this decision on their own as the PCC is owned by the taxpayers of Parksville and used by other communities as well.

If any decision is to be made, it should be made by way of referendum by the taxpayers of Parksville.

What is a community without a gathering place for the businesses and residents of the community?
