Forward thinking Qualicum Beach council

There has always been a degree of frustration within the past councils and that is to be expected.

We totally agree with the letter ‘QB council has long been divided’ by Pat Hadley (The NEWS, May 22).

My husband and I have lived in Qualicum Beach for 21 years. There has always been a degree of frustration within the past councils and that is to be expected.

The names of those who had served on council that were mentioned in Hadley’s letter were all people who we had voted for.

We will hopefully retain the three more forward-thinking members of our current council. They all have our vote.

I wonder if the people who are against change are aware of the number of businesses that have closed or are on the verge of closing?

If we are to have a sustainable business and service industry, we have to be open to some change.

In the interest of full disclosure, my husband and I are retired and we do not own a business in town.
