To the Editor,
My family and I are shocked, disappointed and heart-broken over all the trees coming down in Nanaimo.
One of the areas is both sides of Dufferin Crescent and Bowen Road, across from Madrona Imaging.
Man is taking the habitat away from animals who’ve lived there for probably thousands of years. They’re now coming down into the city, confused, lost and some even angry.
People also need the trees and forests for a healthy, peaceful state of mind. They help with pollution.
If people need housing, we should build up, not out. And we should build housing for poor young families.
I’m wondering where the environmentalists are. Are they not working with the City of Nanaimo to keep a proper balance?
