Enough of the ‘processed beauty’

Once upon a time, Parksville was a place of all natural beauty

Once upon a time, Parksville was a place of all natural beauty. Now you go for a walk and all you hear is the sounds and sights of construction.

They are tearing down our wonderful forest and chasing the animals out of their homes and building what I like to call “processed beauty.” I believe us, the people of Parksville, should stand up to this disgusting act. It is polluting our air, water and is just all around harmful to the world and the Island we call home.

This brings me to my next point. The amount of garbage I have seen being left around town is unbelievable. Is there not some sort of law the City of Parksville can enforce?
