I am perplexed by those who favour the extended life of a tree over the enriched lives of fellow human beings. The proposed Berwick extension can only be beneficial for Comox, both for the individuals who will be served by this award-winning business, and for the community as a whole. The town of Comox needs the value that such a development can bring to its downtown core.
I also value trees. But the Comox Valley has many trees and losing one well-lived specimen will not be such a tragedy compared to the community benefit of the proposed development.
Sometimes common sense dictates that we say “No” to those who shout “No!”
