Why demolish forest house?

It seems an absurd solution to destroy part of the building in the Heritage Forest because town council has been unable to evict the tenant.

It seems an absurd solution to destroy part of the building in the Heritage Forest because Qualicum Beach town council has been unable to evict the tenant.

Keeping a person living in that remote part of the forest would seem to be a good deterrent to discourage vandals and partiers. Will security be required down the road and at what cost?

The property around the stables looks well cared for and it is reassuring to know there is someone close by if needed. There is value in keeping a tenant there and if this fellow gets free lodging in exchange for being a caretaker and has done so without any bother to the town, then why not continue this arrangement?
