One ugly building

Grow op building in Central Saanich ugliest we’ve ever seen

Regarding PNR article Dec. 4, Legal grow-op building, page 1.

Your staff reporter Devon MacKenzie deserves commendation for her article on the new grow-op building at 6922 Lochside Drive. She accurately reported the facts in regards to the location, owners, purpose, and ALR status.

But what really impressed me was her total objectivity in completely ignoring the fact that this is the ugliest structure we’ve ever seen.

Never mind that it’s situated in the beautiful Island View area by Michell Farms. She has shown remarkable restraint in her reporting.

Central Saanich, shame on you for allowing this hideous architecture in our back yard.
