Parksville Qualicum Beach continues to grow while our District 69 councillors continue to ignore the needs of this community.
Deliberations about what sporting and leisure facilities are needed over the past year have already included a major and costly public opinion seeking project, reporting, and investment of effort and time.
I find it hard to believe that our newly elected councillors came to their directorships in ignorance of this.
I am also guessing they stood for public office with the intention of responding to the as yet unmet needs of District 69.
Certainly they were elected to make sound decisions on behalf of those who voted for them.
We have a pool in Qualicum that ceases to meet the needs of our area, no multi-use gymnasium, no athletics track to meet the varying needs of young athletes, adults and seniors.
We are being asked once again to ‘make do’ with the damaged and unsafe Ballenas athletics track and field.
I totally endorse the recent editorial denouncing the bureaucratic indulgence of ‘collective’ navel-gazing.
A multi-sports complex would not only meet the needs of our area, it would also draw sporting and other events from far and wide.
Directors, you were elected to do a job on behalf of those who voted for you.
Another year while you sit on your backsides because you choose to do so while those of us who want to get off ours and have nowhere to go is just not good enough!
