Letters: Groups shown disrespect

Letter writer lauds accomplishments of local business woman

I  too call for respect… and people need to know that passion can be worthy.

What a boring place it would be if no one ever cared enough to let their heart speak.

Frederique Philip is another magnificent product of many years in Sooke.  An Elder.  She never asks for anything lame or without care of consequence. She really cares.  Most of us know how much energy Sooke Harbour House, Frederique Philip and  Sinclair Philip have devoted to clean, moral living with focus on “primarily localized” commercial, rural and artistic integration.

The changes to our 2013 Grants Policy have eliminated a number of proper length and comfortable discussions on how to get what is needed and wanted into an open door forum whose timed is metered.

To clarify, flexibility need be given to the Class “C” grant applicants in timings of submissions as whole pieces or hopefully initiating items as such with approval numbers relative to an understanding that service of said applicant is wanted to be given.  In other words. If the district wants these applicants, grant application offered services.

Businesses are economically lined up in our society to be responsible for close to 80 per cent of our municipal income and are charged much more than farm or residential.

Happy thriving and vibrant commercial areas are what draws customers and provides residents with access to local shopping and business interconnectivity.

Members of the public are always entitled to their opinions on things.  As am I, and in this case, I find it totally improper for an acclamation of vitriol and bad manners to be followed with an statement of accusation of harm to the involved parties and an officious sounding request for Frederique to resign her positions.  Her caring so much just makes me want to sit down and chat with her for hours. I’m even becoming inclined to interacting more with the Sooke Region Chamber of Commerce and Sooke Region Tourism Authority.  Sooke Moon Community Wellness Society is a member of the chamber.

Something happened recently involving Level “C” Grant applicants. The chamber and SRTA have been disrespected and in so doing, disrespecting commerce and wellness in the District of Sooke.
