No wonder there’s deterioration here

In Qualicum Beach our four councillors (not three) voted to appoint Coun. Dave Willie to the RDN Board.

Regarding Frank Horner’s letter (The News, Dec. 9), I should remind Frank that when the Parksville council voted unanimously to appoint Councillor (Marc) Lefebvre to the RDN board, there were smiles all around.

In Qualicum Beach our four councillors (not three) voted to appoint Coun. Dave Willie to the RDN Board.

Mayor Westbroek voted against the appointment, called the appointment undemocratic, then stormed out of the Civic Centre.

It is not surprising that the town’s relationship with the RDN, the school board and our neighbours in Parksville has deteriorated during his term.
