Local woman thinks people should work together for common good

As you both witnessed last night District of Sooke’s council meeting, I want to share with you this:

I don’t think the webcam was in place yet, as I would really like to have every stakeholder in the tourist industry be able to watch how some of our councillors think of economic development.

I think Mike Hicks should ask the District of Sooke to put some money down for the Juan De Fuca EDC as Avatar Grove in Port Renfrew brings a lot of tourists (consumers) to the region and most of them go through Sooke! Or maybe they need to only take the Circle Route from the Cowichan side and not even go through Sooke, avoid the circle.

Working together, no matter what association we belong to, makes us stronger, a foreign concept for some of the councillors it appears.

Mr. Kasper doesn’t seem to understand that joining the dots is more important than keeping everyone disconnected.
