Derelict houses a sore sight for eyes

Dear editor,

Driving or biking from Comox to Courtenay, I can’t help but wonder why our Regional Board officials allow the parking of Nickel Brothers’ derelict houses along this pretty stretch of road. Nickel Brothers may own the property, but should this really be permitted?

I say not on your life!

If they are going to offload these buildings in this location, they should be required to move them to a less sensitive location within days, not years as seems to be the case.

The other eyesore on the Dyke Road, the La Farge cement tower was removed, thankfully, a few years ago, and it is time that the regulations regarding the Nickel Bros. property were changed to clean up this ongoing assault on our eyesight.

Ask yourself, would Qualicum, Parksville or Campbell River put up with this nonsense on their city entrance?

I think not!
