Loss of Comox heritage will keep tourists from stopping here

Dear editor,

Please do not think that the destruction of a part of B.C.’s heritage is a local issue.

Information on the willing removal of a piece of British Columbia’s heritage by your town has reached all the way across the country. I live in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia, and have just read the article thanks to the Canadian Museum Associations’ daily Clipping Service.

Please do not think that me knowing about this will make no difference to your town. As it happens my wife and I will be travelling through Comox twice next month. We will not be stopping for coffee, gas, groceries or souvenirs as a result of this wanton destructive practice. Two people will not make much difference I know – but you will never know of all the others who have made this same decision but have not taken the time to let you know.

Eric J. Ruff

Yarmouth, Nova Scotia
