All is not lost in Qualicum Beach

One can only assume that they are impressed by the Beach Club in Parksville

So, the usual three “progressive” members of Qualicum Beach town council have pushed through the approval of the Clarion development.

One can only assume that they are impressed by the Beach Club in Parksville, and want our town to have similar buildings.

However, all may not be lost. Whether or not this project proceeds to fruition will surely depend on the developer’s perception of its viability. Right now, our real estate market is experiencing something of a slowdown. Unless things improve, and soon, the developer may decide to wait for better market conditions.

By that time, we will have had another election (in November 2014) and that new council may well have a different perspective on such matters.

Meanwhile, do not be downhearted Mayor Teunis Westbroek and Coun. Scott Tanner. You are probably closer to knowing what the majority of the townsfolk of Qualicum Beach want.
