Re: The perils of home construction (News, Jan. 18)
I am very pleased that the Oak Bay News is paying attention to the critical and growing issue of questionable demolitions.
I find it hard to believe that a demolition company can legally demolish by chainsaw the fence of a neighbour at 7 a.m. without prior notice, and in the process essentially destroying the usability of the neighbours’ backyards.
These actions may be entirely legal. If so, the bylaws need upgrading – and quickly.
Thanks again for covering this important issue.
