Letters: Kids have manners

Returning to Sooke letter writer finds kids speak well for the future

One of the re-discovered pleasures of moving back to Sooke after 32 years was to have some two dozen ghosts and goblins of all ages knocking on the door for Halloween again.

In rural Digby Neck, Nova Scotia, where we lived for the past six years, there are very few young people and the daily school buses roll down Highway 217 half empty.

Not only were the costumes clever and well thought out, but every one of them — and I do mean every one of the ghosts and goblins said “Thank you.” Speaks well for the future of Sooke’s upcoming generation and the parents raising them.
