Polar Bear Swim needs louder countdown

We look forward to attending the Sidney Polar Bear Swim every New Year and this year was no exception. Each year the participation has grown which is wonderful to see. However, this year it was apparent that a P.A. system was needed to do the countdown. As the noon hour approached all of the brave were eagerly awaiting to enter the water. We were standing at the north end of the crowd and didn’t hear any announcement when all of a sudden those at the south end were already in the water. Many people were taken by surprise and rushed to disrobe to get their thrill. Perhaps the organizers could ensure that next year they have access to a sound system so no one gets left behind. It’s a wonderful event!

I think most compassionate citizens would say the PNR is doing a fine job of addressing the admirable goals of Richard Le Blanc while giving equal time to the ALR/NIMBY snivel fest of his opponents.

Guess the comfortable are feeling afflicted.

A couple of weeds and the odd stray cow encroaching on your property?

Yup, a pivotal moment in the history of Central Saanich.
