Citizen surprise

Some of the biggest complainers have only lived here for a short time

I attended last Monday’s meeting at the civic centre hosted by the Group of 10 known as the Concerned Citizens of Qualicum Beach.

I was surprised to hear when they introduced themselves that several members of the group have lived in Qualicum Beach for two years or less.

In fact, two of the gentlemen we see quoted in The NEWS have lived here for two years and less than one year, respectively.

I find it curious the QBCC would hold this meeting at a time when they knew that the entire town council and senior staff were out of town at the UBCM meetings in Vancouver and were therefore not able to attend and respond to questions from the public.

Coincidence?
