Sound QB management

Our town has a history of sound governance, financial stability, human scale development and community involvement in planning decisions.

Qualicum Beach did not get to be the way it is by accident. Our town has a history of sound governance, financial stability, human scale development and community involvement in planning decisions.

These traditions were abruptly interrupted with the election of the gang of three in 2011. This interruption lasted for three years and enough damage was done with the approval of a multi-storey condominium project in the village centre, the Clarion, the elimination of development charge costs for developers in the downtown village and the disbanding of advisory committees.

It is surely time for us to elect a town council that will return to our tried and true approaches of common sense, fiscal management and the protection of small-town values.
