Willie should resign

Comments about resident association were denigrating

After I attended Monday night’s Qualicum Beach town council meeting and public hearing and then I re-read the quotes from Coun. Dave Willie reported in the Parksville Qualicum Beach News of May 2:

“They get a phone call from the Mayor or Scott Tanner and are told what their position will be,” said Willie. “I just don’t trust it (the QBRA) anymore and neither does anyone else.”

I respect Willie as a member of council to have and voice his individual opinion. However, rude and personal statements reflect badly on our town.

All people living in Qualicum Beach can be members of QBRA. This councillor, elected by the people of Qualicum Beach, has just chosen to insult all citizens of this town, a privilege that is not granted upon being elected.

Do the honorable thing, resign. See if all those people you don’t trust will show their trust in you again. I dare you.
