Letters: Finding drama in Shirley

Movers and shakers in community of Shirley want no development

Anyone who believes that the economic future of our entire area should rest in the hands of the core, navel-gazing movers and shakers of Shirley, deserves the thunder storms of tumult, that  inevitably follows.

If one likes drama — go to a Shirley meeting. If one wants conflict – make a development proposal there, however much an improvement it may be.

Shirley is a remote community. Stubbornly remote. Improvements are unnecessary, as it is already perfect in Shirley.

In fact, you can hear the quiet in Shirley, all the way to Sooke, in fact, all the way to the CRD in Saanich.

What more could one want?

No more than one deserves, I’m sure.

The Wii in Shirley, never a dull moment.
