Negativity a waste

I personally don’t know anyone who is opposed to the changes happening in Qualicum Beach and I can’t wait to see the finished Clarion.

I sure am getting tired of all the old folks complaining to no end about change in Qualicum Beach.

Wake up people, change is good. I am going to be here for the next 40 or 50 years, as are my very young children.

We want to see this town flourish and it will not do that without some positive change.

Some of our town council members get that and it’s very much appreciated.

Thank-you for your hard work and dedication in this grumpy, old town — especially when faced with nothing but negativity.

You complainers seem to think that everyone in town agrees with you. That is not the case and I really think you are the minority.

Most of us have better things to do than to sit around and publicly complain all day. We have jobs and children, we have households to run and all kinds of fun activities to keep us busy.

We love this town, and we embrace change. Either we’re too busy or we can’t be bothered to voice it publicly, so let me take a few moments to say it now.

I personally don’t know anyone who is opposed to the changes happening in Qualicum Beach and I can’t wait to see the finished Clarion.

I think changing the railroads into rail trails is the best idea I’ve ever heard. I would love to see an Olive Garden in Qualicum Beach.

And don’t tell me you older folks wouldn’t be lining up for a cup of Tim Horton’s coffee if one was allowed.

So come on people, stop being so negative. It’s a waste of time and energy. Start thinking of the good that will come with change.

Qualicum Beach is a very special place and that will not change because of a building.
