LETTERS: Enliven city with investment


With a little imagination, White Rock could be turned into the mecca of B.C.


With a little imagination, White Rock could be turned into the mecca of B.C.

White Rock is nice and quiet, where people go to buy an ice cream and walk along the promenade.

I’ve lived here for 30 years and I’ve loved it compared to many places. But, from a younger person’s perspective, I would think it kind of boring.

My early youth was spent in a seaside resort, and within our home we had quiet and privacy, but with five minutes of walking there was a pier twice as wide as the one in White Rock, made of concrete with a beautiful building with dance floor and place for a band.

The young folk came from miles around, bringing their girlfriends or wives.

There was no alcohol, but everybody had an enjoyable evening without it.

It brought such activity for the waterfront stores, and there wasn’t a 10th of the parking facilities that White Rock has.

It would cost millions, but it would put White Rock on the map, and property values would soar.

Donald C. Chivers, White Rock
