Nothing minor about 3L’s application

Dear editor,

The Comox Valley Regional District has finally voted to not accept 3L’s application to apply for a ‘minor’ amendment to the Regional Growth Strategy.

So now the following question needs to be asked and considered, before another application is submitted.

Just how is it that an application that disregards the containment boundaries set out in the RGS would ever have been considered within the less stringent criteria of a ‘Minor’ Amendment, when it obviously would be a precedent-setting application worthy of Major Amendment status?
