Letters: Do what is best and moral

The strong defeated majority won says letter writer

I read words in Wednesday’s Sooke News Mirror about our municipal sewer system and EPCOR and then vitriol against the establishment, using words like “…a process as biased, as mismanaged, and as inexplicable…”   and “…Our elected representatives cannot bring themselves to …” and then back to John Phillips Memorial Park.  Things in a tone of historical accuracy that is not up to par with my ethics.  Relative to lifting of the covenant.  Defeated majorities have been mentioned before and here they are mentioned once again.  Go ahead, keep mentioning the defeated strong majority. I will keep repeating. The strong majority won.

Relative to public awareness a statement was made, “With the exception of Open Houses for the Parks and Trails Plan, and for the OCP, the subject of John Phillips Memorial Park never came to the public until March 26, 2012 …” Many times, the use of John Phillips Memorial Park has come up in meetings in the District of Sooke council chambers and administrative office.

At one point it is inferred not enough is being done and then it is said district staff made a statement “… should be reviewed… …confirmed.” If… “that is all we ask.” Well, why go on about it then?  It has already been proven to be a proper system by this statement.

Mountain biking is a highly respected sport and real areas to bike are precious. What we’re talking about here moneywise is $3,600.  Money to be used to hire a team of professionals to detail an integrated into proper focus and view of the community vision in the best way for the community.  John Phillips Memorial Park belongs to the District of Sooke. Elected officials, administrators and community groups do or should do what is best and moral for the District of Sooke in its affairs.

This is not about to become just a dirt track. I guarantee it.
