Letters: Don’t waste money on dog park

Sooke resident feels there is enough open space for dogs

Re: No need for another dog park

Thank you Thomas and Storm Kowalchuk. As a dog owner and former resident of Vancouver, I couldn’t agree more with your letter. We also moved here to get away from the excessive rules and regulations that accompany city life. As you and others have pointed out, there are already plenty of parks and beaches to take your dog to in and around Sooke, on or off-leash. As well, the establishment of an official dog park will most certainly fuel calls for a ban on pets at places like Whiffin Spit. I might add for anyone unfamiliar with dog parks that such places are breeding grounds for fleas and the sites of frequent dog/people fights.

I hope Sooke Council isn’t seriously considering wasting our time and tax money on such an asinine, anti-dog idea.
