Re: ‘Saddened by opposition to Corfield project’ (Letters, PQB News, Jan. 1)
I am absolutely amazed with some comments such as above.
This one and many others like it as published in the PQB News just are narrow-minded by focusing only on some of the potential residents and their issues.
As one of the many opposition people, all of us have no problem with the people who have issues and those who really need help. The whole opposition was from those Parksville citizens who love their city and want it to continue to be successful.
Our thoughts were re: putting this type of housing (with no precedent) in the heart of the business and tourist areas would do harm to Parksville’s family-oriented image, tourism and business.
I do not know one of the opposition that would be against a different location, closer to 24-hour health services and not smack in the public scrutiny.
Let’s put a well-needed affordable housing unit at 222 Corfield to serve the many persons who want to take the many jobs available and have a place to live that they can afford.
