Letters: Losing creativity and vision

Letter writer feels the Philips are undervalued and unsupported

Sooke Harbour House has done more for this town’s image than the Prestige or any other fancy new state-of-the- art multi-million dollar establishments ever will. The Philips have never received the support they have deserved except from other national sources… interesting, yet a typical testament to Sooke’s small mindedness.

It will be a great loss to this town to lose this type of creative and artful vision that have graced our shores for so long. Sadly, creative vison seems to be lacking in this town. Our hopes for a new beautified downtown seems to be quickly going down the drain unless we encourage, rather then discourage folks like the Philips to contribute to the business aspects of this community via “equitable” access to permits and grants.

I’d also like to say that the editor’s caption on the article’s photograph was highly insensitive journalism… yet again.
