Re: Celia Fisher's letter (Coast Reporter, July 3).
I am also dismayed that Ms. Fisher has so little accountability to her community.
VisionQuest must be accountable to neighbours and community. Questions about their facility are the responsibility of residents and governments.
Ms. Fisher, since representing Area E as Sunshine Coast Regional District (SCRD) director, has taken a negative attitude towards her community and the SCRD. Her goal appears to be to discredit the SCRD and issues that Area E residents have concerns for.
The "very demanding bunch" she refers to are the constituents she misrepresented while holding office and who voted 70 per cent in favour of no restructuring.
In no way is our community against healing in an orderly process, but we must insist that bylaws, community plans and the safety of the residents are protected.
So far as the residents who question VisionQuest, demanding we vote no to restructuring and demanding legislation against WalMart from locating in Area E, it seems to me that Ms. Fisher's views of what her neighbours and constituents wish for are the reasons Lorne Lewis was selected on the platform of simple life with few bylaws, low taxes and one less layer of government.
Elphinstone will continue to fight for community improvements and the rural aspects we enjoy.
