question of the week

Survey results are meant for general information only, and are not based on recognised statistical methods.

Where is the logic?



Gosh, the latest George Hotel specs look just like the new projects being completed all along Marine Drive in North Vancouver and all over the Lower Mainland.  Tourists will arrive with a warm feeling of not having left home at all. Better yet, they can save the ferry time and cost and enjoy the same views in their own neighbourhoods.

Yes, we need economic development, but why must it include the destruction of our super naturally beautiful waterfront? There are endless sections of land above the village that would provide spectacular views to tourists and condo residents — locations that would suffer none of the serious environmental impacts that The George will cause, that have established roadways to handle the increased traffic, and that provide easy access to shopping, banking and medical services.

The local investors, contractors, realtors and others with a financial interest would realize the same profits, and employment opportunities would be the same.

I feel blessed every day that I live in one of the most beautiful villages in the world and have arrogantly proclaimed that I will never move again. If the Town is ill-advised enough to accept this project, they will prove me wrong and I will be moving on. Sadly, I do not think I will be the only one to do so.
