Where is the parking?

Editor:

Recently, the corner of Cowrie Street and Inlet Avenuehas been altered. The corner is now a large round bulge and many parking spacesare being eliminated on Cowrie and Inlet.

The Village Restaurant, on that corner, is a very popular café and is usually full of customers. Where are they to park? Why is this alteration being made? Loss of business would affect both the people who operate and work at the Village Restaurant, and the owners of the building could be affected if business at that corner is reduced. The owners no doubt bought the building in order to provide some income from the rent paid bythe businesses.

If this is another "innovative" boondoggle, and it is applied to all of Cowrie Street, other businesseswilllose also.I didn't see any decision by our democratic government toeliminate parking spaces right in our business areas.

If Sechelt council has not approved this nonsense, then the parking spaces should be reinstated.

Alice Janisch, Sechelt
