Re: Seawall walkway won’t be rebuilt (News Review, Aug. 31)
It seems ridiculous to me that lock blocks that have stretched for about a kilometre for more than a decade without dire consequences to sea life should now require a “project review” from the Department of Fisheries and Oceans, when identical replacement blocks are being considered for the damaged 100 metres.
To save time and money, Sidney council has now decided to dump a pile of rocks on the path, thereby shortening this incredibly beautiful walkway that is enjoyed daily by countless people.
The DFO is flexing its bureaucratic muscles, just to show it can. Surely a better solution could have been found.
