Re: ‘Assessments required’ (PQB News, June 25)
This article upsets us. At first glance we felt it must have been left over from the April 1 edition.
Really? The city is going to spend $164,000 tax dollars to study, seek approval for and authorize cleaning up Parksville Beach? This involves such stupidity as to be laughable.
Anytime we go to “our” beach we see people climbing on, sitting on, taking selfies on and generally enjoying the logs and stumps that provide attractive diversity on our waterfront. Rocks from previous unsuitable works projects roll in and out at the will of the tides and redistribute themselves with the seasons.
Where did the logs and stumps come from, you may ask? The same place they will come from again… the ocean! One or two good winter storms will see to that.
Please don’t study what doesn’t need studying. Please don’t fix what nature will rearrange on its own. Please don’t waste our tax dollars. Al Greir and councillors, shake your heads when you waste costly staff time with motions like this.
