Holding Comox Valley Airport's 'feet' to the fire

Dear editor,

The Airport200 Facebook page needs thousands of members/friends.

Feel free to join and collectively we should be able to force an action.

This is an open and public page and any resident and traveller can self-register at www.facebook.com/groups/comox200 and offer constructive suggestions.

Mr. Fred Bigelow (CEO of YQQ Airport) has written that lawyers were asked to poke around.

However, Goose Spit fires were not resolved until Goose Spit Beach Fire Facebook attracted over 4,000 friends and Mr. Russ Arnott organized a massive demonstration there. Should I ask how "extremely fast" our legal profession is dealing/charging Stanley Cup rioters?

Hundreds of people could see the very top of the airport tower and Royston shores from Goose Spit Park on Jan. 17, 2014.

However Westjet WS195 and earlier WS257 were diverted as well as other carriers.

Our dear family did not arrive and two days later they travelled back from Vancouver to Edmonton. We did not hug our seven-month-old grandson and our family wasted over $2,000 and over 100 hours looking for alternative ways to get to Comox — without any luck.

Pavel Knettig,
