Letters: Initiatives need to see light of day

Bike Skills Park in Sooke should be built for kids

There is growing support for a Bike Skills Park in Sooke, and people who want to hear more should come to the Feb. 28 meeting at the district.

I do not have any kids here, nor do I ride a bike (yet) but I support this great idea. Sooke needs to get going on a number of initiatives and I am tired of just talk. The lack of sidewalks, park improvements and basic road maintenance to say a few.

Keep in mind that we need to improve conditions in this town for everyone of all ages, so when you are balking at spending money on a seniors’ centre, remember not all seniors like the bike park idea either.

I ask that you pick a project and help us build a community. (A favorite quote). Think of all the people that passed up dessert on the Titanic.
