Leave Qualicum Beach as it is

Town reminds writer of Carmel, California - in a good way

As a Canadian, I lived in California 37 years. Shortly after moving to Parksville 12 years ago, I visited Qualicum Beach and remarked to a couple of shopkeepers how their town resembled a little Carmel. They were delighted.

Qualicum Beach has a unique character and is the envy of many other towns its size. Thousands of tourists visit for this reason — and they shop. My wife and I bring our friends there. Please, council, do not destroy the beauty of Qualicum Beach! The city of Carmel, California, is what it is — a favoured destination and a tourist mecca — because of the controls imposed by councils.
