Letter: Politicians must represent majority

I am very sad to receive these emails about the great Subaru Western Triathlon Series on TSN being held somewhere other than in Sooke.

This was a very good thing that we had going for Sooke, and it was let go by our politicians because of protest from a few people (if I understood this properly)!

I followed the Tour de France on the news, and the roads are closed  for this event in England (this year) and in France, for not just a day or two or three hours, but way longer, allowing everyone in the crowd to enjoy it greatly!

A real economic boost for a region. We let it go.

A question that needs to be asked to any one running for the election in November: What would you do if confronted with this problem, and how would you make a decision for the good of the majority of the people in our community versus a small group of people?

We have witnessed over the past few years decisions in Sooke made for the small groups versus the majority more often than democratically expected.
