QUALICUM BEACH ELECTION: ‘I am unimpressed in the extreme’

Another resident opposed to the tactics of the Concerned Citizens of Qualicum Beach

I am a resident of Qualicum Beach and am concerned about the recent actions of a group that is calling itself The Concerned Citizens of Qualicum Beach. I am a concerned citizen living in Qualicum Beach, but when I want to publicly express opinions about our town and our town council, I will identify myself and attach my name to my statements.

Who are you, concerned citizens? Your recent mailing via Canada Post which I received in the mail this week attaches no names to your statements. You advise me to vote only for the candidates that deserve my vote. And then you tell me who deserves my vote. Hmm. Do I need that advice from you (whoever you are)? Obviously you can afford to spread your message in a large mailing to all of us in Qualicum Beach. On your mailing there is no phone number, no website, only an e-mail address or a P.O. Box mailing address. No names are on the message. Again I ask, who are you? Why should I believe and respect your statements?

I follow keenly our local, provincial and federal politics. I respect a sharing of ideas, but not by secret groups. I do not welcome being told what is right and not right in our politics by a secret group. What is your agenda? You do not represent me. I am unimpressed in the extreme.
