Congratulations and stay the course, city hall

Dear editor,

I feel compelled to congratulate the staff at city hall for doing their jobs, which as I see it, is to make sure regulations are upheld.

If Mr. Coulson feels they are there to help advance his development I think he is suffering from the same thing as Alison Redford did, a sense of entitlement.

And while I’m at it, I appreciate the greenness of this Valley and the small individual businesses.

I do not want to see another housing development take the place of green space or, heaven forbid, another big box store which only serves to put the small businesses out of business and import more superfluous consumer goods from China.

If this continues, we will soon look like Nanaimo, nothing individual about the place, just another strip mall with no character.

Keep it up all you engineers – don’t be intimidated.

Claudette Preece
