Boundary mistake?

I don’t understand all the controversy about the containment boundary issue in Qualicum Beach.

I don’t understand all the controversy about the containment boundary issue in Qualicum Beach.

It is obvious that this is a housekeeping issue. I cannot believe that the previous council(s) willingly gave the Regional District board the authority to make a decision about our boundaries. It has to be an oversight.

Can anyone tell me why a very busy RDN director from Lantzville or Nanaimo would want to be involved in a decision about our containment boundaries? In my opinion, they would not have the knowledge, nor should they care.

If the previous council(s) willingly made that decision, they should be taken to task and made to justify such a stupid choice.

If this is such a great idea, how come the other RDN communities don’t follow suit?

A plan is a guideline and, if a mistake was made in the plan (namely the OCP), it should be rectified immediately. I don’t know of any business that would hold off for another three years to amend a business plan with a glaring error.

This is basic business management 101.

Let’s fix this and move on.

We have more pressing issues to deal with. After all, it has to be a mistake.
