Re: Time to think when left in the dark, Sept. 4 letters.
Thank you to the letter writer who wrote in regarding the abundance of overhead wires in the White Rock area.
I have to agree wholeheartedly with his views.
Perhaps not everyone is aware that 90 per cent of all new construction on the hillside must have a 30-foot electrical pole in their front yard.
How lovely. At this rate, soon it will look like Thailand or Vietnam with more and more wires.
In my opinion, why not call it the ‘City of Wires’ instead of ‘City by the Sea’? It is getting harder and harder to see the water.
It seems to me that city council and the planning committee do not have a vision for the future. At this rate, the next big storm may put even more people without power, cable, Internet and telephones.
There is one hope at least, as I came across the planned capital projects from the 2013-2017 Financial Plan, which states “install underground wiring on Marine Drive.”
I sure hope that comes true, as it would certainly improve our beautiful waterfront.
