My wife and I would like to express our utter dismay that the question of the proposed Gateway shopping area should even come under consideration.
The health and vitality of our beloved Sidney by the sea would be fundamentally reduced. Businesses in Sidney are struggling to survive and the idea that more shops of whatever size on the western side of the highway will help their situation is utter folly.
It is up to North Saanich and the Town of Sidney to stand up for what is most certainly the objection to this proposal from a vast majority of inhabitants of both areas.
