I resent being labeled anti-development because I like Qualicum Beach the way it is. There are many new developments around the town that look great, that fit in well, are charming and don’t detract from the ambiance of the village. Congratulations to those developers who respect our town.
At the same time, I resent the actions of councillors Mary Brouilette, Dave Willie and Bill Luchtmeijer during their three-year term on council. They have already done enough damage, rushing through The Clarion, without proper community consultation, shifting the burden of DCCs to taxpayers.
They attempted to extend the town’s growth containment boundary — a recipe for urban sprawl and increased taxes for all of us.
Hopefully, voters in this election will not re-elect these three councillors. Along with mayoral candidate Denyse Widdifield, we would have a gang of four for four years.
Another four years of their agenda and Qualicum Beach will no longer be the place we love.
