Letters: no difference between old and new

Letter writer thinks editorial means to divide Sooke

I note with some degree of concern your thinly veiled attempt to create a divide between what you describe as old and new Sookies rather than focusing on Sookies as tax payers.

I am curious to know where this dividing line would fall; is it one, five to 10 years of  being a Sooke resident?

You go on to state that “it’s not just the old boys’ network anymore” last time I looked there were three sitting women councillors or are you trying to imply that they are part of the old boys’ network? They might strongly disagree.

The value attached to “old Sookies” with their history and experience should be embraced not demeaned.
