Letter: Cleaning up graffiti

Kudos were extended to person or person who cleaned up bus shelter

This is a letter of thanks to the person(s) who painted over the graffiti that was on the brown, brick bus shelter near the Saseenos Shell Station.

Sooke has made such progress in recent times in terms of beautification and instilling pride in our community, that it was a crying shame that one of the first sights to welcome people on their way into Sooke was that bus shelter, which had become an eyesore with a variety of tags.

I had called a variety of people I thought might be responsible for maintaining the shelter (ie. BC Transit), only to find out that nobody really knew whose property or whose responsibility it was.

So, to whomever it was that took the time to restore the shelter, I would like to convey my sincerest appreciation.
