HAVE YOUR SAY: Quit picking on Maple Pool

When is someone on Courtenay city council going to have enough intestinal fortitude to put forth a motion to change the zoning for Maple Pool campsite to coincide with the other campgrounds in the Comox Valley who are allowed to remain open all year round?

When is someone on Courtenay city council going to have enough intestinal fortitude to put forth a motion to change the zoning for Maple Pool campsite to coincide with the other campgrounds in the Comox Valley who are allowed to remain open all year round?Why did Cumberland Council member Kate Greening insinuate that disc golfers “didn’t honour” the reason for the park being built? Kate, what did you mean by this? How do you know what myself or any other park user honours? I happen to have great respect for other cultures, and parks. If Coal Creek Historic Park is reserved for only those directly involved with it, and the individuals it was meant to honour; then please just come out and tell us, put up a private property sign and help it remain a sombre, empty place for no one to use.On behalf of all the Faith Lutheran Church ladies, thank you to everyone who came out and supported us at our garage sale for east Africa held on Piercy Avenue.Well, it  may  have  been  “a  fast- moving  bush  fire”  to  quote  the  Comox  fire  department in  Fridays  Record  last  week  but I  can  assure you it  was  not  as  fast  as  your  white  fire truck,   which  came  up  behind  my  sons  as  we  stopped  at  the  crosswalk  at  the  bottom  of  Guthrie  between  Anderton  and  Pritchard  on  last Tuesday. Surely  whoever  was  driving  your  fire  truck  was  aware  it  was  the  first  day  back  at  school  and  there  were  kids  crossing  in  front  of  our  car.  As  Guthrie  narrows  at  this  point  it  is  virtually  impossible  to  pull  completely  off  to  allow  you  to  pass, at  which  point  you  used  your  bullhorn. We  all  appreciate  the  “fast  action  of  the  fire  department,”  but  your  behaviour  was  unacceptable.
