Letters: Avoidance tactic?

I am a volunteer with the Sooke Animal Food & Rescue Society,  SAFARS, and was one of the protestors on January 13, 2014. CTV had covered a story on us but after the last Council meeting on January 13, 2014 there was no coverage about our protest in your paper.  Is this due to the mayor’s clarification of “we have no land for this use?”

Is this due to the mayor’s clarification on December 9, 2013 that no land can become available for an animal shelter?

I believe that your newspaper’s silence is just an avoidance tactic that could be challenged by The Freedom of Information Act. I am very disappointed about your refusal to publish the truth.

SAFARS volunteers work very hard to help the unwanted animals and raise awareness.  We need your help.  We are not asking for land to be donated to us but leased to us so that we are not using taxpayers money for our cause.
