It is very interesting that the Qualicum Beach Town Council quickly rejected plans for rezoning by the owners of the Qualicum Gardens because there is opposition by local residents.
It has been almost a year since a majority of this same council ignored the overwhelming opposition of neighbours to the College Inn development.
This new sensitivity to the expressed wishes of the community by three of the town councillors is a well-deserved victory for the residents of the Gardens.
It is of little consolation, however, to those who must suffer the consequences of other decisions in which these same councillors defiantly opposed the community.
What is going on? Could there be an election in the next three months, or something?
