Election changes

Now that the election is over and things around here have changed dramatically... or have they?

Now that the election is over and things around here have changed dramatically… or have they?

In Deep Bay (Area H), what has changed is we now have a machine that sounds like a diesel, logging-siding loader in a residential neighbourhood that lifts the load of seaweed off the residential beach that the tank drives upon and assembles in baskets.

The smell, the sound and the visual impact at our once beautiful, natural, loved beach is gone. Also we have learned of the proposed industrial medical marijuana grow-op on a Gainsberg Road property.

It would have been nice if Joe Stanhope of the RDN had included this Bowser property when he wrote the letter about the Nanoose Bay proposed medical marijuana operation to get it stopped. But there was no director on the board that would support such an idea. I wonder why?

And the big change with the election over is that a Surrey developer is coming back to the RDN with his idea for high-density development in Deep Bay once again. Yes, the more things change the more they stay the same.
