Courtenay gets what Courtenay wants

Dear editor,

I heard Larry Jangula’s comments on the radio today regarding the wellness centre that will be built near my house.

Dear editor,

I heard Larry Jangula’s comments on the radio today regarding the wellness center that will be built almost across the street from my house.

My inference from his comments is that he thinks the neighbours are cool with this future build because of our silence.

I don’t know anyone who is in favour of our neighbourhood changing so significantly.

Yes, the land is zoned for whatever, but when I moved here the land was part of the school. I could not predict that the school district would be so hard up that they would sell part of the property.

But what is the point of complaining given the City’s track record?   Public consultation is a sham. Just look at Costco and the hospital.

If city council wants it, it happens. Period.

My advice — never buy property near vacant land. Zoning can change at the drop of a hat and your lovely neighbourhood might be smack in the middle of an industrial park.

Susan Klimczak,

Courtenay
