Respect on display
Excellent editorial on shellfish poaching ["Editorial: Poacher's delight," August 30]. Maintaining the ecological integrity of Powell River's shorelines shows respect for residents and distinguishes Powell River from competing destinations.
We should be grateful to those who report offenders.
Fires raise insurance question
We've all heard about the wildfires in our province and have seen the sites where houses used to sit. I wonder if any of them were listed on Airbnb [“City tracks Airbnb listings,” August 23].
I also wonder if the insurance company, in an effort to minimize financial loss, will look at the Airbnb website and see if any of the houses listed are ones that burned down.
If your home was one of those places destroyed by the wildfire and was listed on Airbnb, will the insurance company void your insurance policy for that reason? Maybe they will even sue you for fraud. How deep are your pockets?
If you're looking to make money, start up a Money Mart. Airbnb is chicken feed compared to that.
