By this time you may well have heard many voices raised against the felling of the poplar on Qualicum Beach golf course.
So here is one more, adding a thought which might not have been voiced before.
In this time of climate change many governments are suggesting one should not build on a flood plain. It makes sense to me. So if you aren’t prepared to accept water in your basement, don’t build there.
Likewise, if you purchase a house near an existing airport, it might be considered petulant to complain about aircraft noise.
So, if you buy a house adjacent to a golf course one should be prepared for trees, roots and golf balls. The golf course certainly predates any of the houses in question, and the tree probably did, too.
It was a poor decision taken by the QB council. Hats off to the gentleman who had the courage to confront the authorities.
