We need to encourage business not hinder it

Re: CVRD community and regional planning division As a local business owner, I wish to provide my support for Andrew Sheret Limited with regards to their rezoning within the CVRD Official Community Plan for Area D -Cowichan Bay.

I understand that their request to be rezoned to accommodate for some outdoor storage at their new location in Koksilah Village is currently being reviewed by the CVRD.

I do not understand why this responsible, B.C.-based business would not be encouraged to operate in our community, bringing the jobs and prosperity to our region instead of being suppressed in the re-zoning process. My plumbing business has been working with Andrew Sheret Limited for over 18 years and their ability to provide a wide range of stock with excellent customer service is essential to my business success.

I am also an employer and I need access to materials so I can offer the best plumbing services to the new developments our community.

The more you limit their business, the more you limit my business and the success in our region.

I hope that many community members attend the July 31 public meeting to show support for Andrew Sheret.

We need to encourage business in our community, not hinder it.

Juergen Suelzle, president J.S. Plumbing Heating Ltd
