Apartments in Duncan empty due to fire

Re: empty apartments in Duncan

Once again, another letter writer blowing off steam and shooting off from the hip. I am tired of reading letters to the editor being printed that have no common sense in relation to facts and reality of the topic. These kind of letters must cease immediately.

The 30 units were all affected by a major fire, beginning in one apartment and spreading fire damage to other apartments and smoke damage throughout the 30 units. The owners of the building have insurance, and insurance claims are not settled in a quick responsive action. These 30 units will remain vacant until the insurance company gives final approval to the insurance investigation.

If Drew would have done his research, he would have noticed just because a building has insurance, does not in any way guarantee a rapid approval for repairs and renovations to be made. This is not the only building in the province that is waiting for insurance approval. Unbelievable!
