Clean up your act

Letters

Over the past few months Sooke has been developing new and exciting developments and changing the look of the Village of Sooke, however, I have also noticed that a property on Sooke Road at Dover across from the elementary school and on the main drag of Sooke is being used as a dump. There have been full bins, cars with no tires, etc.

I understand that the property was once or still is owned by a Sooke council member, Mr. Herb Haldane.

This is not the place to be leaving behind objects such as the above. The Sooke Elementary School is just across the street. The Mariners’ Village’s brand new building is just up the street. This lot is an unsightly mess. There is also a truck parked in Razu welding’s parking lot which is just a mobile sandwich board. This would be a new one, which are not allowed.

What kind of impression are we giving to those people who are considering moving to Sooke, the tourist population and other businesses?

This is not an industrial site and should not be used as one. I certainly hope this will be cleaned up soon as our tourists are upon us.
