Letters: Picking a charity for me

Donating to a charity fine, if that's what donator wants

I read with some interest your article in the January 14 edition on “How to deal with Kitchen Scraps.”

I found it interesting that Sooke Disposal is adding an additional $2 per month to my bill for charity.  I have no issues with the charities they selected but do have an issue with the fact that they are charging and selecting a charity on my behalf.

I contract Sooke Disposal to deal with my waste disposal and not to select on my behalf the charities I may or may not support. In addition will Sooke Disposal be providing charitable receipts to all its customers or shall they be accepting a tax deduction on its customers behalf as well.
