I just wanted to chime in on the latest proposed location of the new hospital.
Firstly, while it would be nice if the communities of Comox Valley and Campbell River could each have their own, it doesn’t sound like an efficient use of taxpayers’ money.
Secondly, why are we considering locating it on a beautiful forested piece of land that will have to be destroyed when there are lots around that have already been nuked. Natural properties like the one next to North Island College are rare and are great amenities to the community.
Finally, why would you put a hospital so close to residential neighbourhoods when plenty of properties are further away that would suffice?
You think the sounds of Costco are bad, wait until the sirens come a roaring.
And what about public consultation? I assume this will take place as this property is zoned only for educational uses and not a hospital.
