Error in facts


Re: Boat launch costs are as promised, Letters to the Editor, Sooke News Mirror,  Aug. 31, 2011

The writer should check his own facts before publicly challenging information presented by others around the controversial boat launch project.

Grants from senior levels of government for the boat launch project are not allowed to go towards the purchase of the land for boat launch and access for the new hotel.  That was the responsibility of the District of Sooke to purchase the land at the cost of $915,000 and not $320,000 that the writer implied.
