Letters: Kudos to road crew

Sooke writer comments on great job being done by construction crew

I have been thinking about writing a letter to the editor for the last three weeks.

Would it be about Tom Fletcher’s love to hate the BCTF, or would it be about the demands of the BCTF, or to the B.C. Federation of Labour talking to the BCTF about what they are asking for?

There have been lots of letters on all sides of the situation, so what should I write about this last Friday, March 16?

I was driving a friend into Victoria for an appointment around 6:30 a.m. It was still a little dark and some fog. There is a a double yellow line above Cooper’s Cove, I was going a little above the posted speed limit and a car passed me and some back of me.

Should I write about that? No, I just hope those people in that car were late for their first coffee break.

I want to write about the work that is being done along the Sooke Road in front of the tire shop and along side the creek. What a great job the traffic controllers and the machine operators are doing. They had two lanes when we came through there.

I used to fish around there when I was a kid, a friend and I would go there on our bikes on a Sunday. They have a job to do and they are careful of drivers and the creek.

My cap goes off to all of them and the tire shop’s gals and guys.
