VIMC lawsuit won’t help noise, the environment

Noise always a complaint — there are numerous ways in which we annoy the heck out of each other

VIMC lawsuit won’t help noise, the environment

Post VIMC hearing.

What started as people complaining about noise, turned into an environmental concern, and then a final result of a financial burden for all North Cowichan residents and business owners. This lawsuit doesn’t help the environment. It won’t even make things any quieter.

The environment has been and will always be an argument as our global population continues toward 10 billion — Canada approx. 100 million by 2100.

Noise will always be a complaint — there are numerous ways in which we annoy the heck out of each other in this category.

Economies are complex, interconnected, and fragile. Do you value any of these amenities: electricity, indoor plumbing, roads, buses, cars, STUFF, education, grocery stores, your home, and health care? These are a few of the things that are dependent on some habitat removal and some larger businesses coming to the Valley. If you don’t like that, then please submit your ideas of how to do it differently.
