LETTER: Survey did not measure support
Mr. Dan Huang, senior planner for Urban Systems, argues, “Support for suites is growing in the community as living space becomes increasingly priceless.” (Poll Shows Mixed Views on Suites, Oak Bay News, Aug. 5, and for the record , Oak Bay News, Aug. 12.)
However, Mr. Huang’s statement is not supported by any evidence from the survey his company conducted. In fact, Urban Systems missed an opportunity to gauge residents’ views as its company’s survey takers were not asked if they supported (or did not support) the approval of second suites in Oak Bay.
