The developers rule

There already isn't enough water to go around in this area

With the water restrictions in place because of collapsing clay banks on the Englishman River and an overflowing Arrowsmith Dam up in the hills, combined with falling levels of water in our well fields — maybe it’s time to face the facts folks.

Parksville has let developers rule the population and building supply without thought to water capacity.

City council unfortunately does not have the will to come to grips with reality by just approving any old building scheme.

There are just too many people for the water available!  Put a moratorium on all building permits until we catch up.

If developers don’t like that — put up the $50 million for an expanded water treatment plant — otherwise cool your jets.
