Letter: Paid employees are not volunteers

Employees at TLC are paid well and TLC should pay their taxes

Re: TLC denied tax exemption, Sooke News Mirror, Oct. 17, 2012.

I think a lot of people confuse non-profit organizations with volunteer organizations.

In 2011, the TLC had 30 employees earning an average $76,800 a year in salaries and benefits.

This is no volunteer organization.

They can pay their taxes like everyone else.
