YEAR IN REVIEW: February

Here’s what happened this year in February

Sooke worst intersections and roads for serious crashes were revealed in a new report from ICBC.

The worst: Murray and Sooke roads, Church and Sooke roads, and Phillips and Sooke roads.

Total accidents recorded in Sooke in 2015 was 161, which included fatal, injury, no injury, single vehicle and multi vehicle collisions.

Also in February:

• Sooke Coun. Kerrie Reay announced she will not seek re-election citing what she calls “an unrelenting campaign of controversy” against her, council and district staff.

• About one-third of B.C. HandyDart riders say the ride service is not meeting their needs specifically when it comes to ride availability and wait times for rides. That’s according to a report released by the Office of the Seniors Advocate.

• The new year started off on a high note for local realtors. Homes in Langford, East Saanich and Sooke are the fastest selling in the Greater Victoria region, according to a report provided by the Victoria Real Estate Board.
