The Editor, Re: "Walmart will ruin cityscape," Letters, Sept. 13. I agree 100 per cent with Mary Phillips' open letter to mayor and councillors in the Richmond News.
We do not need Walmart in Richmond just as we do not need any more high-rise buildings.
Onni's ugly buildings on the Steveston waterfront is an insult to residents who bought there after being told they would have river views.
The City of Richmond was also given land many years ago by Woodwards east of Lansdowne Centre for a community park.
Does anybody see a park there? No. This city council has taken family neighbourhoods and changed them into high-density occupancy, thereby collecting more and more taxes, but not spending a penny on improving badly needed facilities for promises made.
Children entering kindergarten this year will not know what a tree looks like by the time they graduate as every time a new development is built, trees are lost needlessly.
