LETTER: Kudos to preservation society, Town of Qualicum Beach

Re: ‘Town of Qualicum Beach defers discussions with preservation society regarding wetlands’ (PQB News, Sept. 23)

Great news to read the article on discussion deferred with Qualicum Nature Preservation Society (QNPS). It looks like the society has a role to play in protected lands.

The use of covenants to protect environmentally sensitive land is an excellent way for the real estate industry to get on board with environmental issues. The importance of ecocentric thinking is a wonderful longterm view on growing the economy and protecting the environment.

The thinking of every person for themselves (egocentric) needs to become a thing of the past.

Kudos to town chief administrative officer, Daniel Sailland, and to the QNPS for their visionary support.
