Letters: Challenging the Dogwood Initiative

Shirley resident wants environmentalists to follow his lead

Re: Tired of self-congratulatory global warming advocates.

$1,200 a year is what I save by paying no vehicle insurance; I achieve this by having no vehicle.

The importance of this fact is, that I am going to challenge every member of the Dogwood Initiative, to follow my example and use a bicycle for all local transportation, including grocery shopping, and use the bus in town — town means Victoria.

Put your money where your mouth is Dogwood Initiative. Because you sure can talk the talk, the question is, can you walk the walk?

Let’s all follow your example – how about that? And be advised — I bike 25 kms into Sooke empty and 25 kms back to Shirley loaded down with two weeks of groceries. So, if you feel like whining your way out of it, don’t whine to me.

N.E.MacNab
