Letters: Shutting out common sense

The back country access issue still rages on in Sooke

It all becomes clear now. The original trail users beyond Harbourview gate, took offense at that 10 per cent of vehicle users, who brought beer and guns and partied out of control.

The obvious solution was a locked gate with a key given to responsible users.

Someone, however, saw an opportunity to shut out any and all who do not meet some personal criteria.

Thus we shut out the good with the bad; the responsible with the irresponsible. Thus we see the injustice that hanging on to an ideology breeds.

“Let them sit at the back of the bus” or better still, “don’t let them on the bus at all”— because they are upsetting the vibe.

Wow, and you’re trying to tell me the majority is in favour of this?

Whatever happened to common sense in rural communities.
