I live on Goldstream Avenue.  The area north of my property is the red area illustrated in your last issue belonging to the Provincial Capital Commission and proposed to be sold off.

Neighbourhood stories have it that in years past, property owners along Goldstream, who generally owned the entire north-south strip between Goldstream Avenue and the Trans Canada Highway, were encouraged to donate a piece a property along the highway in order to preserve a natural-looking approach to the city.

If so, the sale represents a betrayal.
