LETTER: Qualicum Beach dispensary belongs in Qualicum Beach

It would be reasonably logical to assume that the only reason the Qualicum Beach council would be discussing this issue is if there was a possible need for a dispensary in Qualicum. Why then, would Heather Jacobs suggest that the dispensary be located in Coombs or Errington?

Sound like classic NIMBYism to me, or possibly a “holier than thou” attitude. I would suggest that many residents of Coombs and Errington will take umbrage with her suggestion, perhaps rightfully so.

I can’t help but wonder how Ms. Jacobs would feel if the shoe was on the other foot.
