LETTER: Brits treated royally in Sooke

A small car problem for two travellers rectified quickly in Sooke

Brits treated royally in Sooke

We were recently on holiday in Western Canada. While staying in Victoria, we decided to do a day trip up to Sooke and the local area.

When we arrived in Sooke we parked in a small car park, and drove into a pothole. Our small rental car made a bit of a noise, and when we stopped and looked underneath we could see a fluid dripping.

We were worried that we had damaged either the fuel tank or the radiator, so we asked for directions to the local garage.

When we got there, a lovely guy (who we now know is Jason Dumont) looked under our rental car and reassured us it was only the air conditioning fluid, and that we had not done any damage to be worried about.

We were very grateful of his reassurance and were able to drive off and enjoy the rest of day in Sooke and walking on Whiffin Spit!

Many thanks to Jason Dumont, and the women of the Little Vienna Bakery where we had a lovely coffee and cake!

Please see attached a photo of us with your Sooke newspaper back here in Hastings, England.
