Letters: Bike park letters

At the open house for the bike skills park question, I made the comment about the Sooke Bike Club sending a letter to the local schools to ask for the children to write letters to council supporting the bike park proposal, but, actually the letter was sent to the local principals, asking them to write letters, on school letterhead, in support of the bike skills park.

This, in my opinion, is the principals, representing the will of all the students and their parents, in favour of something they may not even know about or may not support. Principals administrate the schools’ workings and if the Sooke Bike Club wanted they could have asked to put up posters to notify parents about the open house.
