On Saturday, September 20th, I held an event where people were invited to come and talk about concerns or questions they have about issues facing the City. Throughout the afternoon a variety of visitors stopped by and we all had many lively debates; some about the pros and cons of certain issues and others about what some of the major concerns are.
The top three issues we kept coming back to were:
- Maple Pool and affordable housing in Courtenay
- The new bridge and how to get around Courtenay traffic issues
- The amalgamation of Courtenay and Comox.
I am grateful to Doug Hillian, who took the time to come by, share some of his insight, and brought a friend.
