Letters: Greetings from South Sudan

Former RCMP Staff Sgt. Roger Plamondon misses Sooke

I hope that my message finds you in good health. I have been in South Sudan for the past 10 months working with the United Nations. I have two months remaining and look forward to my return trip to the Island.

We are doing our very best in this part of the world to work with the local police.

I just wanted to say that I really enjoy the community paper that is available online. I am a big fan of Elida Peers! She is a great story teller and I am always learning something new about Sooke. Please pass on my best regards to her for me.

I do miss life on the Island, the Sooke community, the rain (it was 38C today and the temperatures keep climbing) and those runs on the Goose.

Roger Plamondon
