Re: Qualicum connection — local man a part owner of the NHL’s Phoenix Coyotes, The NEWS, July 4.
It is a proud moment in our local history when an upstanding community resident and businessman creates opportunities both at home and abroad.
Such business acumen must be applauded, if not celebrated, and it was a pleasure to read the story in The NEWS.
Our local communities could definitely benefit from the successes of our residents. We have many local charitable organizations, non-profit societies and volunteer run events which could definitely benefit from and build on the unique talents and resources of such community leaders.
I look forward to reading follow-up stories which will surely highlight not only the business prowess of our neighbours but also how such wonderful personal success is shared within our community, thereby strengthening us all.
