LETTER: Tesla centre would be a shock to neighbourhood

I have a few comments on the article: “Tesla sales, service centre rumoured for Langford.”

As much as I appreciate the opportunity to introduce the training in future technologies that will benefit Langford’s workforce skill-base, living next to the “development” off McCallum has spoiled any green future image Tesla might want to project.

Over a year of forest removal, soil scraping, blasting-vibration, dust and especially endless noise that seems to go on forever has damaged all association of Tesla with any form of advancement. Just the same old ‘sacrifice the environment for a buck’ backwardness Langford is famous for.

If Island Tesla owners are already used to the long-distance service experience I’m sure they’d be comfortable driving into Langford’s business core and at least leave the Costco area to the residential development it was promoted to be.
