LETTER: Alternate route planned for Sooke

Weekly letters to the editor from within the Sooke community

No one seems to know about Sooke Road. You can’t do anything about the old Road.

All you have to do is get the Highways Ministry to finish the four-lane that was mapped out to go over the hill and come out at Saseenos.

Many people, myself included, have seen the map. I worked for a time at Highways in Langford and have seen the map.  A friend has also seen the map.

All we have to do is go after Sooke, the Capital Regional District and the B.C. government to finish the road. Don’t forget: the squeaky wheel gets the grease.

This could be a good time with the elections coming up.

This road hasn’t changed much since my grandfather came out with his horse and wagon in the 1890s to go to Leechtown and go fishing at Weeks Lake.
