Councillors show courage

Response to the thoughtful and reasonable letter to the Peninsula News Review from Dr. Robert H. Brown

I am responding to the thoughtful and reasonable letter to the Peninsula News Review from Dr. Robert H. Brown.

Having been a resident of North Saanich for more than a decade, I am disappointed with the dogma of the no change groups who resist even the most modest proposals for incremental growth. As correctly identified in Dr. Brown’s letter, our municipality is blessed with abundant open spaces and large tracts of land that are uneconomical for farming but could accommodate incremental and controlled growth in response to our pressing housing needs. Credit goes to those council members who have shown the courage to help our municipality adapt to the 21st century.
