Letters: Just kids playing

Children being given the boot for playing on trailer park property

To whom it may concern, my apologies as I’m very disappointed with some of our community members and don’t mean to come off disrespectful.

So, here’s my little rant. I personally have lived in Sooke for nearly 29 years. I moved here with my mom into the only trailer park on Kaltasin Road when I was one-year-old and have grown up down on Kaltasin for most of my life. Now with that being said, I have children of my own and yes, I still live down here. Now our respectful little neighbourhood has begun to turn its ways. My children, along with the rest of the neighborhood children, have been given the boot and not very politely I must add from the trailer park down on Kaltasin.

Their reasons are due to no children living in the park so why should we allow it? So it’s rude to let our children ride through on their bikes not doing any harm or damage and apparently even walking through to go to the beach (it’s the closest and safest beach access for the children) is now causing grief. To which they are yelling and cursing at our children, threats of calling the cops and harming them for trespassing.

I’m sorry, but this is uncalled for. I understand it’s a private park but why now? Why all of a sudden? (Even the cop I dealt with said there’s nothing nobody can do if they’re not causing harm, there’s no issue). The kids aren’t doing any harm, it’s just a safe place to go in the neighbourhood, a safe point for us parents to give a little leeway. With all these child abductions happening it’s such a secure place to let our children learn the roads and other safety of life.
