Town to gussy up road in front of Legion

Move comes just in time for Remembrance Day ceremonies in Qualicum Beach

Veterans Way is going to get a makeover, just in time for Remembrance Day. The move comes after Coun. Mary Brouilette raised the issue of the condition of the road, which runs past the Royal Canadian Legion in Qualicum Beach.

It is in very poor condition and is a serious liability problem. I would like it put to the top of the priority list.”

Mayor Teunis Westbroek called the comments timely and called on town staff to fill the potholes prior to Nov. 11. That wasn’t good enough for Brouilette, who noted that potholes in the road have been filled repeatedly. What’s needed, she said, is a long-term fix.

Although he doubted the road could be repaved in time for Remembrance Day, Westbroek suggested the potholes be filled now and a more permanent fix be considered afterwards.
