In conversations around Qualicum Beach the word “monstrosity” often comes up in reference to the building proposed for the lot beside the town hall.
I admit to voting for the three councillors who favor the project, but that was before I realized how development-minded they were and before they pushed for the monstrosity, regardless of the town building code.
They would no longer receive my vote and I suspect that this will apply to many others as well. If so, they are now acting against the voters wishes.
If the proposed structure is in fact a monstrosity and turns out to be a white elephant, this will be entirely the responsibility of the three councillors, since they have turned the town council into a kangaroo court.
Is it too late to suggest that a more modest development would be better suited to the site?
