Nature has no place in north end

We need a new road off Turner Road to link to Rutherford Road and we need a traffic circle which most drivers won’t be able to figure out.

To the Editor,

Re: More wetlands being destroyed in north end, Letters, April 1.

I would like to take exception to this obviously uninformed letter.

We need a new road off Turner Road to link to Rutherford Road and we certainly need a traffic circle which most of the drivers in Nanaimo won’t be able to figure out. The great thing is that there is another road linking with Rutherford about 100 metres to the north if they mess up, or Uplands Raceway 200m west if they miss that turn.

I’m sure we can all agree that another delightful natural spot in Nanaimo is no way to have tourists stop for a visit instead of driving right through to Parksville.

A quick note to city council: If you detected a small amount of sarcasm in this letter, good on ya. Now explain it to the rest.

Re: More wetlands being destroyed in north end, Letters, April 1.

It was with horror I witnessed the clear-cutting that has ruined the park and wetlands at Oliver Woods. The trail down to the pond and a variety of ducks have been an oasis of peace and tranquility to young and old alike. Is it going to be the travesty that is Linley Valley, backyards and not a tree in sight?
