Deborah Bulk said she planned to support the owners, Pierre and Bev Koffel, to the best of her ability and to “shower them with love.”

Former Sidney councillor Erin Bremner-Mitchell said she hoped the rebuild would be smooth and quick.

Many longtime patrons were quick to express support.

“Hope to see you reopen soon as Deep Cove Chalet was our favorite place for many years,” said Tom and Barb Kummerfield.
