It’s not often we sit in this space and congratulate a politician, but that’s what we’re doing today.

Last weekend the Capital Regional District celebrated the creation of more parkland in the Sooke Region. The parkland, off Sooke River Road, provides access to Pemberton Pool which has provided chinook and coho brood stock for the Sooke Salmon Enhancement Society for decades.

The pool is critical for the future of the Sooke River salmon stock.

Juan de Fuca Electoral Area director Mike Hicks was instrumental in the purchase of the land. It’s a project he has been working on for a decade.

Hicks calls it one of the most important projects he’s taken on since he was elected. We couldn’t agree more.
