Qualicum Beach electrons

Nostalgia is reigning in Qualicum Beach and recent letter writer Marlys Diamond is the queen.

Nostalgia is reigning in Qualicum Beach and recent letter writer Marlys Diamond is the queen.

Thank you for pointing out our great successes. I have lived some history in QB and if I had to say in two words why those successes are lovingly remembered, they would be “people-oriented.”

Not only was the goal of these enterprises “will the community love it and take part in it?” but they also raised the money, volunteered labour and skills to achieve them.

All of these numerous projects are community oriented: community centre, Communities in Bloom, community gardens. We keep using the names for a reason.

So, expansion and progress are loaded words: expansion for community benefit, or expansion for the few to benefit and use the rhetoric that benefit will “trickle down” to the community?

If we want to be sure what our candidates mean, do as editor John Harding has suggested in a recent editorial and press for specific agenda answers.

And if Rex Murphy believes that municipalities are the “atoms of democracy,” then ask those electrons (get it?) if they intend to work with the neutrons and protons.
