After the Second World War, some islanders in the Pacific Ocean (Cargo cult) built dirt runways and straw airplanes to attract other airplanes that they saw during the war bring in loads of food and supplies.
It appears that the District of Sechelt is trying to do the same thing with our money to attract airplanes from the sky. It is a crazy world, but why do we have to be at the head of the line?
Sechelt council appears to have a lack of understanding of how the Sunshine Coast works. It is like trying to mix oil with water. No public input before starting a $25-million wastewater project and now no public input into if Sechelt wants or can have a larger airport.
Council does not understand that big business in Sechelt is right under their nose as a retirement community with lots of tourism opportunities. They have no idea how important the arts are to Sechelt.
Sechelt is a small town, like family, and this is what city hall should understand. The Sunshine Coast is about nature and understanding how nature works. We live here because we like the sound of the trees and not the busy noise of the big city. We live here because we can taste the colour of the rainbow.
