Snubbing secondary suites is prejudicedPosted: July 26, 2012

Letter to the editor

Snubbing secondary suites in communities like Windermere or Fairmont Hot Springs is a shortsighted and, I would even argue, prejudiced move.

By narrowing the scope of the Regional District of East Kootenay’s proposed secondary suites bylaw, you’re limiting the options for people seeking affordable accommodations. Essentially you’re suggesting sectors of the population like young people, families or single parents, who can’t necessarily afford to rent whole houses, are not welcome in some Columbia Valley communities.

Strong communities are composed from all sectors of the population, let’s not limit ourselves here.

Bram Rossman,
Windermere
