Although the Victoria Airport Authority directs the use of vast acres of land in North Saanich, it is not acting like a team player in its community.
A few years ago, it influenced the building of a major highway interchange to service only itself, when Sidney could have benefited from something collaborative.
Now, the VAA is proposing another shopping mall on its lands that will be in direct competition with Sidney’s main street across the highway. Is there no other way to make money these days than to build a mall and bring shoppers to it?
I ask the VAA to be more creative and collaborative in the possible development of its lands.
