Keating could have Millstream feel

Bylaw to allow larger stores in Keating would bring jobs to the Peninsula

Re: Central Saanich decisions affect taxpayers from Saanich (Letters, March 23)

 

I am happy to hear Walt McGinnis is

fortunate to live in an area where he can conduct his business and is so near to many amenities.

 

I travel to downtown Victoria from Saanichton for my employment, and for groceries I have to travel to Central Saanich, Sidney, or Victoria – a constant use of a vehicle, which I don’t enjoy.

While the thought of a big box store in my area does not please me, the thought of a venue like Millstream village does.

This will bring jobs to our area, one where this is most definitely lacking.
