Pub near a school a very bad idea

Qualicum Elementary school is right next store to old bus garage site

At the all candidates forum the other night in Qualicum Beach  I couldn’t help but wonder about the seemingly general enthusiastic response for a pub supported by Mary Brouilette in the soon to be vacant bus parking lot.

The only concern that I heard mentioned was the necessity that it be an economic success, although the incumbent mayor, Teunis Westbroek, suggested that it should have to be incorporated into an entire plan.

Somehow, even though I am past the parenting age, I would have to question the wisdom of locating a pub essentially next to an elementary school.

It’s a topic for reasoned discussion in the next council no doubt!
