Bravo to the author of the letter Let's Envision the Future We Want for West Van (North Shore News, Sept. 28). It was undoubtably the most important one in recent history.
However, it should have been addressed to every citizen from Horseshoe Bay to Deep Cove because it applies to the entire North Shore community. Our corner of the Lower Mainland is being dramatically changed by local politicians, their staff and by developers. I repeat McIlwraith's key question: "Is it what the rest of us want?"
This letter was in response to:
Cities, like people, have pivotal moments which can go unrecognized until it is too late. Moments when we have choices we may not even realize are critical, when the decisions we make are irreversible and take us one way or another but never back.
Come on people, don't let the vocal minority dictate what your community will become. This is what democracy is all about. It is about citizen participation. Speak up, lest you get shut out!
