Resort would have provided access

Letters

I was introduced to Point No Point Tea House some 30 years ago. I met Miss Packham, who had a dream when she retired to build a tea house on Canada’s remote West Coast. I returned many times, walking the trails and reveling in the spectacular scenery, Miss Packham had a dream and anyone can share it.

Now, Mr. Ilkay is proposing to build Marine Trail Resort. While I can no longer navigate the trail to China Beach, this resort will provide access to seniors like me. to the trail so I can once again enjoy the area I love so much.

Further, this development will be managed responsibly and aesthetically, creating jobs which we need so desperately here for our young people.

By attempting to shut dow Marine Trail Resort seniors like me will be denied access to the trail. Once again the zealots will rule. I’m offended in the extreme.

Incidentally, my partner owns acreage on West Coast Road and is one of those rural residents who does support Marine Trail Resort.
