Re: An ode to town’s vanishing trees (The NEWS, Letters, Feb. 6).
Obviously there are people in Parksville that appreciate the natural beauty of trees, which make this place in Canada one of the most beautiful.
Yet the municipal government seems to find the display of nature expendable. At the rate development is going, within a few short years we will be hard-pressed to find any tree or bush that has grown naturally.
Perhaps that’s why Qualicum Beach still has a beauty that Parksville can only reminisce about.
Shame on the city council for being so short-sighted.
